Alabama not No. 1 in ESPN's post-Week 1 power rankings
According to ESPN, Alabama is not the No. 1 team in the country.
The defending national champs are. Georgia jumped to No. 1 in the latest ESPN Power Rankings following their 49-3 clobbering of No. 11 Oregon.
Georgia looked good, but it’s hard not to give the nod to a team as powerful as Alabama. What is clear is that the 2 SEC powerhouses are head and shoulders above the rest of the country. The Tide ranked No. 1 in the recent AP Poll, which came out Tuesday afternoon.
Here’s how the rest of the SEC shook out:
- No. 1: Georgia
- No. 2: Alabama
- No. 7: Texas A&M
- No. 10: Arkansas
- No. 11: Florida
- No. 19: Kentucky
- No. 21: Ole Miss
- No. 25: Tennessee
Florida jumped really high for its 29-26 win over Utah, as did Arkansas slightly for beating Cincinnati.
