Clemson holds strong in Top 5, South Carolina rises

CLEMSON, SC (AP/FOX Carolina) -

Nebraska has dropped out of The Associated Press college football poll after its latest humbling loss, and the top of the rankings was unchanged after No. 1 Alabama passed its first big test of the season.

The Cornhuskers, No. 23 last week, are unranked the day after UCLA won in Lincoln, Neb., 41-21. The Bruins scored the final 38 points. Since Nebraska's record streak of 348 consecutive poll appearances ended in September 2002, there have been only two seasons (2010, '11) in which the Huskers have been ranked every week, starting in the preseason.

The Tide received all but 1 of 60 first-place votes from the media panel after beating Texas A&M 49-42. The Aggies are 10th. The rest of the top five is Oregon, Clemson, Ohio State and Stanford.

South Carolina rose from 13 to 12 in the AP poll after defeating Vanderbilt 35-25 at home on Saturday. They also rose in the USA Today poll from 14 to 13.

Clemson held steady in both polls (3 and 4 respectively) during their off weekend. They travel to Raleigh to face North Carolina State Thursday night.
