Clemson jumps up to No. 8 in both the AP and coaches poll after Saturday's stomping of Virginia Tech.

As the first team in ACC history to win three consecutive games against ranked opponents, Clemson has moved into the top 10 of both major college football polls.

The Tigers, now 5-0 after Saturday night's 23-3 win at No. 11 Virginia Tech, host Boston College next weekend.
