·2 min read

With Week 2 officially in the rearview and another Clemson win in the books, its that time of the week again for USA TODAY’s weekly top 25 Coaches Poll, which is released following each week of competition.

Quarterback DJ Uiagalelei was the star of the show for the Tigers on Saturday, completing 21-for-27 passes against the Paladins for 231 yards along with 36 yards rushing. The starter connected with ten different receivers in the victory, five of which recorded at least three receptions each.

Clemson came into this week slated in the fourth spot and will retain that fourth spot within the Top 25 for the third week in a row, only trailing behind Alabama, Georgia, and Ohio State.
