Alabama remains atop the AP Top 25 poll
It didn’t take long for history to repeat itself. The Alabama Crimson Tide and the LSU Tigers are the back at the top of the AP Top 25 poll that was released on Sunday morning. The Crimson Tide held on to its No. 1 ranking for the third week in a row while the Tigers moved up to No. 2 following a win over Idaho and Southern California’s loss to Stanford.
The Crimson Tide dismantled the Arkansas Razorbacks on the road to open conference play on Saturday, 52-0. It was that dominant display from head coach Nick Saban’s squad that earned the Tide 58 of 60 first place votes.
Alabama and LSU were ranked No. 1 and No. 2 last season during the final AP Poll of the season after the Tide shutout the Tigers 21-0 in the BCS National Championship game. The two teams opened the season in the top five of the poll, but after a few fortunate changes and dominant performances from both teams, the Tide and Tigers are right back where they were on January 10.
Oregon, Florida State and Georgia are the new No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 teams, respectively.
Southern California fell to Stanford 21-14 on Saturday evening and dropped from the No. 2 team in the nation to No. 13. Stanford, a team that was ranked No. 21 going into Saturday evening’s game, moved into the top 10 and is now the No. 9 team in the land.
