Rankings from AP Poll

After playing in the 1950 Orange Bowl and 1952 Gator Bowl in spite of the Southern Conference's ban on postseason play, Clemson was declared ineligible the conference championship. In part due to the ban, Clemson and six other schools left the Southern Conference to form the Atlantic Coast Conference for 1953.
