Alabama Football Widens First-Place Lead in Amway Coaches Poll, Unanimous No. 1 in AP Top 25

Tyler Martin

The University of Alabama football team widened its lead on first place in the latest Amway Coaches Poll that was released on Sunday. 

After thrashing Kentucky, 63-3, the Crimson Tide picked up two more first-place votes than last week. Alabama now holds 59 of the 62 first-place votes.

As far as other Southeastern Conference teams rank in the coaches poll, Florida and Texas A&M are at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively. Georgia moved up to No. 10 after squeaking by Mississippi State, 31-24.

Alabama's next opponent, Auburn, saw a slight jump from No. 21 to No. 19. The Tigers defeated Tennessee, 30-17, in their lead-up to next weekend's Iron Bowl meeting.

In the Associated Press Top 25, the Crimson Tide is the unanimous No. 1 team for the first time since December of 2018. Alabama received all 62 first-place votes. 

It is the 22nd time in school history that the Crimson Tide is the unanimous No. 1. That is a record for most of any school in the history of the poll. 

On Tuesday night, the first College Football Playoff rankings will be released on ESPN.
