Alabama Crimson Tide #1 in Polls
Total Pro Sports – What a crazy weekend in College Football this past week, who would have thought the Alabama Crimson Tide would move to #1 in the USA TODAY Coaches Poll and Associated Press College Football Poll.
Nick Saban, the coach of the Crimson Tide has his team clicking on all cylinders. Look for his team to team beat up on LSU and Auburn in the next coming weeks and stay #1, have a perfect record and compete in the BCS Championship game.
The top five of The Associated Press poll released Sunday:
- Alabama Crimson Tide
- Texas Tech Red Raiders
- Penn State Lions
- Florida Gators
- Texas Longhorns
Next up at No. 1, Alabama.
The Crimson Tide became the fifth team this season to sit atop the AP Top 25, moving up a spot Sunday after previously top-ranked Texas was toppled by Texas Tech.
The Red Raiders, who scored a touchdown with a second left at home to beat the Longhorns 39-33 Saturday night, jumped four spots and past No. 3 Penn State to No. 2. The unbeaten Nittany Lions were idle.
No. 4 Florida moved up one place after its 49-10 rout of Georgia and Texas dropped four spots to No. 5.
The Crimson Tide, which beat Arkansas State 35-0, received 46 of a possible 65 first-place votes from the media panel and 1,600 points. Texas Tech got 12 first-place votes and 1,528 points and Penn State had six and 1,525. The Gators received the other No. 1 vote.
The top spot in the poll hasn’t been held by this many teams since 1990, when Miami, Notre Dame, Colorado, Michigan and Virginia all had a turn at No 1.
