AP poll voter continues to put Alabama at No. 3 behind Clemson and Georgia
Most people would agree that Alabama is the No. 1 team in the country. But not one AP poll voter.
Soren Petro, a host for Sportsradio 810 in Missouri, has put the Crimson Tide at No. 3 on his poll ballot since the season started, and continued to do so again this week. He has voted for Clemson at No. 1 and Georgia at No. 2, both ahead of Alabama, every week.
This week, the Crimson Tide received 60 of 61 first-place votes, all but Petro’s.
It’s certainly a curious decision as Alabama, the defending national champions, has easily defeated every team it has faced this season.
This past Saturday, the Crimson Tide beat Texas A&M, which was ranked No. 22 at the time, 45-23.
Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who has started for Alabama in all four of its wins, hasn’t even played a full game yet this season. But he has been quite successful while he is in the game.
Perhaps Petro will change his mind if the Crimson Tide continue to win, especially when their schedule gets more difficult. They have matchups against No. 5 LSU and No. 10 Auburn still on their schedule.
This Saturday, Alabama faces Louisiana-Lafayette at 12 p.m. ET.
