Alabama drops in football polls

Alabama drops in football polls

Jealous maybe? Alabama, coached by the undisputed best coach of this era, dropped five spots in this week’s coaches poll, falling from sixth to 11th. The Crimson Tide’s second loss of the year was severely penalized as Bama has dropped two Southeastern Conference road losses, one against Tennessee by three points on the last play of the game and one against LSU by a point in overtime.

The Associated Press was a little more lenient, as Bama fell from sixth to 10th.

To be fair, Alabama hasn’t played like the team expected to be a national championship contender, in fact, it was ranked No. 1 in the preseason and leading up to the struggles against Texas and Texas A&M.

LSU’s win over Alabama was rewarded with a nine-spot jump in the coaches to eighth and eight spots in the AP poll to seventh.

He also advanced while enjoying a bye week Ole Miss, from 10th to ninth in Coaches. The Rebels were tied for 11th in the AP.

Alabama will play Ole Miss on Saturday at 2:30 pm CST with CBS televising the game.

Georgia was the near-unanimous No. 1 seed after its solid win over Tennessee, which had been No. 1 in the first week of the only poll that matters: the College Football Playoff selection committee vote. (The next one comes out Tuesday, and one could go out on a limb and suggest that the August bracket could see the Bulldogs as No. 1, not No. 3 like last week. In the polls, Georgia remained No. 1 in both while Tennessee fell to fifth.both.

Both polls had Georgia, Ohio State, Michigan and TCU as the top four.

Along with SEC teams Georgia, Tennessee, LSU, Ole Miss and Alabama, Kentucky is 24th in the coaches poll. Mississippi State and South Carolina are in the “Other receiving votes” category.

Both polls use the same formula, 25 points for first place, 24 for second, etc. Here are this week’s polls from the sportswriters and television personalities who participate in the AP Poll and the members of the American Football Coaches Association who are the voters in the Coaches With record, first votes in brackets and dots:
