Super 16 Poll – Week 2
LSU makes a jump into the top 5
Clemson once again led the poll, and the Southeastern Conference now has teams in slots 2-4 after LSU’s impressive 45-38 victory over Texas in Austin on Saturday night. The Tigers jumped three spots in the rankings to No. 3 and unseated fellow SEC member Georgia in that spot.
Clemson received 38 first-place votes, followed by No. 2 Alabama (four first-place votes), LSU (three) and No. 4 Georgia (one). After the home loss to LSU, Texas fell four spots to No. 12.
Washington dropped out of the poll after being upset by California, and Oregon re-entered the poll after a decisive victory over Nevada. Texas A&M fell four spots to No. 16 after losing at Clemson. Michigan averted a home loss to Army in overtime, but still fell three spots to No. 10.
The SEC now has five teams among the top nine teams in the poll and six total. The Big Ten has four teams in the poll. The Big 12 and Pac-12 have two each, The Atlantic Coast Conference and Independents one each.
