No surprise here. The Alabama Crimson Tide are ranked first in the latest College Football Playoff rankings for the second straight week.
Coming off of a beatdown of lowly Mercer, the Tide head into their biggest game of the season this weekend: a road showdown with No. 6 Auburn in the Iron Bowl.
Should the Tide prevail, they would likely still be in a position to earn a College Football Playoff spot even if they were to lose to Georgia in the SEC title game. First, however, they must get past their arch rival.
Naturally, Alabama fans were fired up about yet another No. 1 ranking, and they took to Twitter to share their excitement:
So Alabama is #1 in the playoff rankings, but will that change after Saturday? Only time will tell. #RollTide
