Alabama Receives All but One First-Place Vote in Latest AP Poll
Alabama has established itself as the clear No. 1 team in voters' minds, but there's still one person that thinks Michigan has the nation's best team.
The latest AP poll was released on Sunday and the Crimson Tide received 60 of 61 first-place votes coming off the bye week. The top five teams remained unchanged as Michigan, Clemson, Washington, and Louisville all picked up big road wins.
Alabama will travel to LSU this weekend to play another top 20 opponent. The Tigers climbed up to No. 15 after a lot of shakeup ahead of them, and Saturday will mark the fourth straight game against a ranked opponent.
