Alabama Football Remains Firmly in Second Place in AP, Amway Coaches Polls

Joey Blackwell

As Alabama football and the SEC gear up for its first week of college football, the AP Top 25 and Amway Coaches Poll released their rankings to open Week 4.

This week was originally supposed to be the first poll that only contained teams that saw action on the field this season, eliminating both the Big Ten and PAC-12 teams from the rankings. However, with the Big Ten announcing that it will still be playing football — albeit a late start in October — the teams of the Big Ten conference have been removed from this week's ballot but are expected to return following next weekend's games.

As the polls have begun to roll out on Sunday afternoon, Alabama remains locked in second place in both polls. The Crimson Tide also received one first-place vote. Only Clemson stands in the way of Alabama, with the Tigers remaining in first place after a 2-0 start to their season.

Here are the polls following Week 3. Polls will be added as they are released:
