Clemson football players and fans celebrate their 34-10 win over the South Carolina Gamecocks.

The defending national champions end the 2017 regular season where they finished off last year- No. 1.

Clemson is the top team in the latest AP Poll and Coaches Poll after dominating South Carolina 34-10 Saturday night at Williams-Brice Stadium.

This is the first time the Tigers have been ranked No. 1 all year as Alabama was the preseason No. 1 team and held that ranking throughout before losing at Auburn on Saturday.

The top five teams are the same in both polls with Oklahoma No. 2, followed by Wisconsin, Auburn and Alabama.

The rest of the top 10 in the AP Poll includes Georgia at No. 6, followed by Miami, Ohio State, Penn State and TCU.

The Coaches Poll also has Georgia at No. 6 with Miami and Ohio State tied at 7. Southern Cal and Penn State round out the top 10.

Clemson will face the Hurricanes Saturday in Charlotte looking to clinch a third consecutive ACC title and spot in the College Football Playoff.

The Tigers received 27 first-place votes in the AP Poll with Oklahoma getting 24 and Wisconsin 10.

Clemson received 25 first-place votes in the Coaches Poll, followed by Wisconsin with 21, Oklahoma with 12 and Auburn with 4.
