The Alabama Crimson Tide are once again on top of the College Football Playoff rankings as we head into the last few weeks of the regular season.
Coupled with Nick Saban’s team’s 31-24 victory over Mississippi State in Starkville and former No. 1 Georgia’s blowout defeat at Auburn last weekend, the Crimson Tide are in their familiar spot at the top.
Twitter reacted to the news, with Alabama fans claiming that they are back where they belong, while others were skeptical.

Why would that committee put Alabama number 1? Are they stupid or something? Have they not been on Birmingham twitter or sports radio? This is where the experts are.

I have no idea how you watch Oklahoma play and don't have them as the best team in the country. They would embarrass Alabama @SEC_Exposed. How can you tell me the sec has 3 teams in top 7 and Oklahoma is 4?! They're the best team in the country. #loveamiamifan

I may miss this pick but let's just put it out there. Alabama over Oklahoma in the National Title game.

Miami has a better argument for being #1 in the Rankings than Alabama does… I get it, but let’s be real. I’d love to see OU’s defense against Miami and I hope Auburn beats the breaks off of Bama.

Auburn is the 2nd coming, Alabama is just trash on defense. Saban is a happy man right now #rat poison

Yo Alabama is an absolute appetizer in the first round of the playoff if they stay #1 and OU stays #4.
Mark Andrews in the soft spot over the middle feasting on that depleted LB core??
One can dream. #Boomer

If Alabama loses to Auburn, y’all think the committee gonna give them a mulligan since Bama has 4 starting LBs hurt?

I don’t see how Miami fans feel disrespected at #3. There’s zero reason to have them over Alabama, Clemson, OR Oklahoma right now.
