Clemson Takes Surprising Shot At Alabama Over Rankings
Clemson takes a surprising shot at Alabama over rankings during a recent interview.
This past weekend, the defending College Football champions won their seventh game of the season in a 45-10 rout of Louisville.
The Tigers are undefeated on the season and have won five out of their seven games by 31 or more points.
Despite this, the school that initially started No. 1 on both college football polls at the beginning of the season has now dropped all the way to No. 4.
Alabama, LSU and Ohio State all currently sit ahead of the defending champs.
Alabama is still No. 1 in the AP Top 25 poll but there was a shake-up in the Top 5 as Ohio State jumped Clemson to move to No. 3.

Understandably, some at Clemson do not have a particularly favorable view of how they have been treated by the polls up to this point – particularly relative to the treatment Alabama has gotten.
“I think somebody told me yesterday that we’ve won five games by 31 points or more and you look at Bama, who’s No. 1, and they’ve won three, and two of them were vs. Group of 5,” offensive coordinator Jeff Scott said.
“It’s not really the rhetoric that we are seeing out there.”
Considering the fact that the Tigers beat Alabama by 28 points in last year’s National Championship game, it is somewhat understandable that they would be a little salty over the criticism they have received thus far this year.
