Clemson ends streak of 107 weeks being ranked in AP Top 25
Clemson is off to a rough start to the season, and even though the Tigers escaped against Boston College, 19-13, Dabo Swinney’s team tumbled out of the AP Top 25.
Clemson’s latest win didn’t impress voters enough to keep the Tigers in the Top 25. That ended their streak of 107 consecutive weeks in the rankings, according to the Associated Press. The last time the Tigers were unranked was the week of Oct. 5, 2014. They are one spot out of the Top 25, 15 points behind San Diego State.
Clemson’s offense continued to struggle, as the Tigers had just one touchdown and 4 field goals. They have a week off before they return to action at Syracuse.
“Not beautiful, but we needed a win,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said.
The offensive struggles have been with Clemson the entire season, and the Tigers have scored just 57 points combined against 4 Power 5 opponents this year.
“Their will to win,” Swinney said, “is special. It’s special.”
