It really doesn’t matter. Everyone we need to beat is on our schedule. If we win out, we’re in! I know that is not a probable outcome, but at least it’s still on the table. After the comeback Saturday, I wouldn’t bet against them!

The human agenda is still written all over these rankings. No way Clemson should be ranked this high. Their strength of schedule doesn't justify it. Neither does the team they lost to because Syracuse was unranked. LSU went into a free fall when they lost to Mississippi State. How is Auburn ranked higher than LSU when they have the same record as LSU does and they're coming off a loss to LSU? At least make an ATTEMPT to seem unbiased!

Clemson should not be nowhere near the top ten. Oklahoma either. Look how far the 2 Washington's fell.

Just keep winning... Find a way to beat bama and we will be ranked where we will be ranked at the end. I have no idea how we beat bama but this team can do it if they play the game of their lives. Just keep winning.

Should at least be top 20 after beating a top 10 team. These polls have no credibility whatsoever. Good thing they don’t count! The CFP poll will be out in a couple of weeks.

Can't quibble. Everyone in the top 20 has a better record, and both of our losses were very bad losses.

Doesn't only matter what LSU did, what other teams have done matter as well.

A.S.U. hammers the #5 Washington Huskies narrowly averting a total shutout thus holding #5 U.W. pointless and no mention?

We both have 2 losses and our losses were worse plus Auburn has looked better overall all year long.
