AP Top 25 Takeaways: Clemson falls during frenetic afternoon

For about 45 minutes late Saturday afternoon, college football was on overload. From Raleigh, North Carolina, to Waco, Texas, it was a moment for multiple screens and social media reactions. It was also a fun reminder that any random Saturday in the college football season can feel like the first couple of days of the NCAA basketball tournament. There was just so much stuff going on. The most important development was at North Carolina State, where the Wolfpack handed Clemson its second loss of the season and put the Tigers’ six-year streak of College Football Playoff appearances in grave danger. No. 16 Arkansas beat No. 7 Texas A&M. And Baylor stopped a 2-point conversion to upset No. 14 Iowa State.
