After a 38-10 win over Western Kentucky, AP voters decided to keep Alabama atop the polls Sunday. After receiving 1,518 votes the first week, the Crimson Tide gained two votes at 1,520. This week’s opponent for Alabama, Ole Miss, remained at No. 19 in the rankings. The Rebels redeemed last week’s loss to Florida State with a win against Wofford.
The rest of the top five shifted. After Clemson survived 30-24 against Troy, it dropped to No. 5 in the nation. Florida State took Clemson’s spot at No. 2.
The SEC has a total of eight teams in the top 25, but after Alabama the other seven are ranked No. 15 and lower. Tennessee is the highest ranked behind the Crimson Tide at No. 15 after a win against Virginia Tech. The largest drop in the SEC may be Georgia who dropped from No. 9 to No. 16 after a disappointing home opener against Nicholls State. Georgia just escaped the Colonels 26-24.
