2. Alabama Crimson Tide
The Tide are a win or an Ole Miss loss away from clinching their second straight SEC West division championship and having a date with Florida in the Georgia Dome next weekend.
They won’t move from this spot this week, especially with the third-ranked team losing and the fourth-ranked team struggling.
Nick Saban’s club is one of the better teams we have seen from him in his career there, which is saying a lot. Their defensive line is horrifyingly good and it wouldn’t surprise me to see the Tide back in the College Football Playoff come December 31.
