Where Alabama Stands in the Polls After Win at Mississippi State

With another top-five team losing this weekend, Alabama still stands in prime position to make the playoffs.

A week after a loss, Alabama bounced back with a dominant win at Mississippi State. Because No. 2 Iowa lost at home to Purdue combined with the performance in Starkville, the Crimson Tide was able to move up one spot in the polls to No. 4

Alabama remains the highest-rated one-loss team and is ranked ahead of eight undefeated teams. 

Here are the polls.
