The University of Alabama strengthened its hold atop the weekly rankings with the 44-13 victory over Miami to open the 2021-22 college football season. 

The Crimson Tide received 59 first-place votes in The Associated Press poll, up from 47 in the preseason poll. It received all but four first-place votes.

Alabama also picked up another first-place vote in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA football coaches' poll, which was released Tuesday morning. Georgia's one first-place vote kept Alabama from being a unanimous selection. 

With Texas A&M moving up to No. 5 on both polls, the SEC had three teams in the top five, and four in the top 10 in the coaches' poll. 

The league has six teams ranked by the AP, the most of any conference. 

Also per the AP: One conference has held the top two spots 76 times since the AP poll started in 1936, none more than the SEC. The now-defunct Big Eight is next with 23.

Miami dropped all the way from No. 16 to No. 24 with the loss to the Crimson Tide.
