All 60 first-place votes recorded this week in the Associated Press’ college football poll had the Alabama Crimson Tide written on them.
Alabama was unanimously voted No. 1 on the weekly AP poll with a total of 60 first-place votes and a total of 1,500 points after the Crimson Tide advanced to 5-0 with a win over Ole Miss on Saturday.
Oregon beat Washington State 51-26 on Saturday to maintain its number two spot while LSU dropped down to fourth behind Florida State.
The Chicago Tribune reports that LSU was ranked second two weeks ago. The Tigers have won both games since then but have still dropped two spots. Those wins, however, haven’t been pretty.
After the Tigers sloppy win over Townson on Saturday, Coach Les Miles said:
“If we don’t turn the ball over or throw the ball on the ground and we protect our quarterback … this thing looks like it’s supposed to … I must not well have prepared them. To say that we made improvement, I can’t say that. I’d have to say it was the same style of football that we played last week.”
Georgia, South Carolina, Kansas State, West Virginia, Notre Dame and Florida complete the poll’s top 10 teams in college football.
