Alabama stayed put at No. 2 in the AP Top 25 on Sunday.
The Crimson Tide vanquished hated rival Auburn in the Iron Bowl, 29-13, on Saturday evening, while No. 1 Clemson narrowly escaped its game with South Carolina.
The Tigers are undefeated, while the Tide have one loss. That “L” column is likely the reason for a big disparity in first-place votes: Clemson scored 53, while Alabama received just eight.
Fellow SEC teams Ole Miss (No. 16), Florida (No. 18) and LSU (No. 23) joined ‘Bama in the poll.
