Alabama Football Moves Up in AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll

Tyler Martin

The Southeastern Conference won't kick off until Sept. 26, but with the two other Power Five leagues, the ACC and Big 12, starting their seasons on Saturday, the AP Top 25 and Amway Coaches Poll was updated on Sunday afternoon. 

From here on out, all polls will only included teams playing this fall. So, the University of Alabama moved up one spot, to No. 2, in both major polls. 

The Crimson Tide only trail Clemson, who is ranked as the best team in the nation in both as well. 

Alabama did not receive any first-place votes in the AP Top 25, but did receive one in the coaches' poll.
