Here's a little background for you courtesy of ESPN's Stats & Info department on Clemson's No. 5 ranking in the latest BCS standings:
It's the program's first-ever week in the top five of the BCS standings.
It is Clemson's highest ranking in the BCS standings. The previous best was No. 7, which occurred last week and also on October 22, 2000.
Clemson is 8-0 for just the fourth time in school history (1948, 1981, 2000, 2011).
However, the Tigers could be on upset alert next week when they take on Georgia Tech. The last time Clemson started 8-0, in 2000, the Tigers also beat the Tar Heels to improve to 8-0, before losing to Georgia Tech the next week. They finished that year 9-3.
