Tuesday, September 3, 2013 11:50am

NEW YORK (AP) — Clemson has surged to its highest ranking in The Associated Press poll in 25 years after the Tigers won the biggest game of the opening weekend of the college football season.

Clemson is No. 4 in the first regular season Top 25, following its 38-35 victory against Georgia. The Tigers received one-first place vote and have their best showing in the poll since Sept. 12, 1988, when they were No. 3.

Alabama remains No. 1 and receives 58 of 60 first-place votes from the media panel after beating Virginia Tech 35-10 to start the season.

No. 2 Oregon and No. 3 Ohio State flip-flop spots from the preseason rankings. The Buckeyes receive one first-place vote. Stanford is No. 5.

No. 20 Washington and No. 23 Baylor move into the rankings.
