(WLTX) - The Gamecocks and Tigers keep inching up the polls.
USC is number 8th in the latest USA TODAY Sports/Coaches poll, and 7th in the Associated Press. Clemson is 9th in the coaches and 10th in the AP.
Last week South Carolina was 8th in the AP, and 9th in the coaches, while Clemson was 11th in both surveys.
USC easily defeated UAB Saturday night at home, winning 49-6. Clemson had no problem with Furman, besting them by a final score of 41-7.
The teams benefitted from Southern California's loss to Stanford, which moved the Trojans out of the top 10.
