Tigers, Gamecocks move up and down the polls

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Gamecocks lost to the Georgia Bulldogs 41-30 on Saturday. The loss has dropped them out of the top 10 in both the AP and USA Today/Coaches poll.

South Carolina's now No. 13 in the AP poll, No. 14 in the USA Today/Coaches poll. They were the No. 6 team in both polls last week.

But there is good news for South Carolina fans. Fellow SEC East team Florida lost to Miami. Therefore the Gamecocks, Gators and Bulldogs all have one loss.

Meanwhile, the Tigers blew out South Carolina State on Saturday 52-13. The big win jumped Clemson to the No. 3 spot in the AP poll. They're at No. 5 in the USA Today/Coaches poll.

The Tigers will head into their off-week trailing only Alabama and Oregon in the AP poll. Ohio State and Stanford come in No. 3 and No. 4 ahead of the Tigers in the Coaches poll.

Also ranked for the first time since 2010 is Miami. Their upset win over Florida moved them to No. 15 in the AP Poll.

Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney even threw up a "U" sign after his press conference Saturday to celebrate the Hurricanes win.

Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd told FOX Carolina that he was paying close attention to the Miami game too while he was on the sidelines.
