Though SEC Network analyst Greg McElroy is an Alabama alum, it’s difficult to argue with the team he has atop his top 6 following Week 3: the Crimson Tide.
This is how I'd rank them after Wk 3

For McElroy, Nick Saban’s squad combines with Clemson and Oklahoma to form what looks like the consensus top three at the moment. Those three teams almost certainly have the three most impressive wins of the early season, with Alabama beating Florida State in Week 1, Oklahoma winning at Ohio State in Week 2, and Clemson beating Louisville on the road in Week 3.
Beyond that, it’s difficult to argue with any of McElroy’s other selections, as Oklahoma State, Penn State and Washington are off to great starts as well.
