Clemson moved into the national rankings for the first time since the end of the 2009 season at No. 21. Auburn, which carried that spot into Death Valley, fell from The Associated Press poll for the second time this season.  

The ACC Tigers rolled up 624 yards to end the SEC Tiger’s 17-game winning streak with a 38-24 victory.

Auburn was ranked No. 23 in the preseason, then fell out after needing a late rally to beat Utah State 42-38 in the opener. Auburn returned a week ago following a 41-34 victory over Mississippi State.

Clemson comes it at #21 in the AP Poll and #22 in the USA Today poll.  The Tigers join the Seminoles (down from #5 to #11 AP, #14 USA Today), the Hokies (#13, #11), Georgia Tech (#25, #24) and North Carolina (#24 - USA Today).
