USC Slides To #9, Clemson Up To 11th In BCS


By Sports Department

(WOLO) -- Not only did Texas A&M's upset at Alabama over the weekend likely ruin USC football's chance at a BCS bowl game, it also knocked the Gamecocks down a spot in the latest BCS standings.

Despite a convincing 38-20 home win against Arkansas over the weekend Carolina dropped one spot to #9 in the BCS. Clemson moved up two spots to 11th. The Tigers are coming off a 45-10 rout of Maryland.

Clemson will host NC State this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. on ABC Columbia. The Gamecocks host Wofford at 1 p.m. on pay-per-view TV.

Kansas State is the new #1 team in the BCS. Oregon is 2nd with Notre Dame at #3. Alabama dropped to 4th. For the first time ever, the SEC owns teams 4-9 in the BCS with Georgia, LSU, Florida, Texas A&M and USC following the Tide.
