Garland vs. The AP Top 25 (Nov. 8): LSU drops to No. 9 in latest poll

By RALPH D. RUSSO

Clemson is the new No. 1 team in The Associated Press college football poll, knocking Ohio State from the top spot for the first time this season.
    
The Tigers are top-ranked in the AP media poll for the first time since the final poll of the 1981 season, when Clemson won its only AP national title.
    
The Tigers (9-0) received 31 first-place votes and 1,489 points after beating Florida State 23-13 on Saturday. Ohio State (9-0) had 26 first-place votes and 1,460 points. The defending national champions have been first since the preseason, when they became the first team to be a unanimous preseason No. 1 in the 79-year history of the AP rankings.
    
No. 3 Alabama (8-1) climbed four spot and got two first place votes.  No. 4 Baylor also received two first-place votes.

The AP Top 25 is determined by a simple points system based on how each voter ranks college football's best teams. A team receives 25 points for each first place vote, 24 for second place and so on through to the 25th team, which receives one point. The rankings are set by listing the teams' point totals from highest to lowest. Fox 8's Garland Gillen is one of those voters.

This is Garland Gillen's 6th year as a voter for the Associated Press poll.
