In just one night, the Alabama Crimson Tide forced 16 of 17 voters to flip their No. 1 choices and proclaim Nick Saban’s squad the best in the conference.
Now, 100 percent of SEC Country Power Poll experts agree: Alabama is in a class by itself.
The Tide dismantled rival LSU, 30-16, in Tuscaloosa on Saturday night, making them SEC Country’s first-ever unanimous No. 1 with 221 points. LSU and Florida split votes at No. 2, with the Tigers still holding a sizable lead (201 to 190) over the Gators.
Alabama’s next opponent is Mississippi State (No. 4), which improved one spot after a 31-13 win at Missouri on Thursday night.
Full results are below:
|RANK||TEAM||POINTS||1ST PLACE |
|4||Mississippi State (7-2)||162||0||4||7||5|
|10||Texas A&M (6-3)||84||0||6||13||6|
|12||South Carolina (3-6)||28||0||11||14||12|
