Even after LSU mania, Tigers still hold the No.1 spot in ESPN's Power Ranking

  1. Clemson (2-0)

After escaping Texas A&M with a two-point victory last season, the Tigers were absolutely dominant in a 24-10 win over the Aggies at Death Valley on Saturday. Clemson moved to 19-2 against ranked opponents over the past five seasons, which is tops in the FBS. The Tigers are also 14-5 against SEC foes since the start of the 2012 season. The Tigers didn't surrender a touchdown until the final seconds of the fourth quarter. That late score snapped Clemson's streak of 11 consecutive victories by 20 points or more, which was the second-longest such streak in the AP poll era (since 1936), according to ESPN Stats & Info.
