The Crimson Tide (4-0) blew out Southern Miss at home and received 64 of the 65 first-place votes in the poll. Georgia was the only other team to receive a first-place vote, and the Bulldogs came in at No. 2.

Oregon moved up to No. 3, and Oklahoma, while coming off a less-than-impressive win over West Virginia, only lost spot and dropped to No. 4.

After that, the Top 10 was No. 5 Iowa, No. 6 Penn State, No. 7 Notre Dame, No. 8 Cincinnati, No. 9 Florida and No. 10 Ohio State.
