Clemson Closing the Gap on Alabama

Clemson Closing the Gap on Alabama

The win helped Oklahoma State be named the No. 6 team in the AP's poll, but Oklahoma's victory in Norman didn't impress voters too much.

One of the biggest questions this offseason was how the defending national champions would replace quarterback Deshaun Watson, and Bryant has done that remarkably smoothly in his first three games as a starter. Clemson received 15 first-place votes, with the Sooners receiving the remaining vote.

Six ranked teams lost on Saturday, including four to unranked teams, shaking up the bottom of the Top 25.

Following Week 3 of the 2017 college football season, which saw Clemson shellacking Louisville, USC squeaking past Texas and multiple top 25 teams going down, we have a new top 25.

The top is unchanged with Alabama and Oklahoma in the 1-2 spots. Three Big Ten teams round out the top 10 - MI (3-0), Wisconsin (3-0) and Ohio State (2-1).

Linebacker Porter Gustin, who had two screws placed in his big toe Wednesday and then recorded two sacks on back-to-back plays in the first half, missed the second half after aggravating the toe injury.

One team that plummeted was LSU (2-1), which fell from No. 12 to 25 after being routed 37-7 by Mississippi State. Mercer?! And as impressive as No. 24 Florida's Hail Mary was to beat No. 23 Tennessee 26-20, neither team looked capable of matching up with No. 1 Alabama (again). Penn State's odds went up slightly following a dismantling of Georgia State.

Coming into their Week 3 game against 18th-ranked Kansas State, Vanderbilt was somewhere between a 4-6-point underdog at home.
