Despite Impressing Showing Against Georgia, Alabama Stays At No. 2 in Coaches and AP Polls

Tyler Martin

After a 41-24 win over then-No. 3 Georgia, the University of Alabama (4-0) stayed at No. 2 in the Amway Coaches Poll and AP Top 25 this week, only behind Clemson (5-0) who trounced Georgia Tech, 73-7.

However, the Crimson Tide did pick up eight first-place votes in both polls, six more than it had last week after defeating Ole Miss.

The Bulldogs (3-1) fell one spot to No. 4 and Notre Dame (4-0) replaced them at No. 3 after a 12-7 win over Louisville.

As far as the rest of the Southeastern Conference goes, Auburn and Tennessee both fell out of both polls this week and the Crimson Tide does not have a ranked opponent on its remaining schedule currently.

Only four SEC teams remain in both polls — Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, and Florida. 

Coastal Carolina, who beat Louisiana on Thursday night, 30-27, has made the first appearance in school history in both polls being ranked 24th in the Coaches Poll and 25th in the AP, respectively.
