Even in the midst of a three-game winning streak, South Carolina’s football team is going the wrong way in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll.
The Gamecocks fell to No. 14 in the poll Sunday, following their less-than-impressive 35-28 win against Kentucky at Williams-Brice Stadium. They were jumped by Miami, which blew out Georgia Tech on Saturday. In the past three weeks, USC has dropped two spots in the poll.
Clemson maintained its No. 3 ranking in the poll after a 49-14 win at Syracuse. The Tigers are behind No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon, which have held the top two spots since the second week of the season. Ohio State, Stanford, Florida State, Georgia, Louisville, Texas A&M and LSU round out the top 10.
Florida State jumped two spots in the poll, setting up a matchup of potential top 6 teams when Clemson hosts the Seminoles in two weeks.
