Alabama No. 1 after 66-3 win, Georgia moves to No. 5 in Super 16 poll

Alabama’s dominant 66-3 win over Ole Miss made a statement of sorts for the Crimson Tide.

Coach Nick Saban’s team is by no means complacent atop the college football world entering October.

Alabama (5-0) remained No. 1 in the FWAA-NFF Super 16 poll released on Sunday morning, tops among the three SEC teams listed.

An esteemed panel of 48 media and College Football Hall of Fame members vote each week to determine the rankings, which also are posted on  the National Football Foundation website.

Georgia (5-0) followed up its 31-3 win over Mississippi State with a 41-0 victory at Tennessee on Saturday and moved up from No. 8 to No. 5 in the poll.

Auburn (4-1), which crushed Coach Dan Mullen’s Bulldogs 49-10 at Jordan-Hare Stadium, is ranked No. 12 after being ranked No. 14 last week.

The top four teams in the order remained unchanged, as Clemson (5-0) won at Virginia Tech, 31-17, to remain No 2. Oklahoma (4-0) had a bye on Saturday, while Penn State (5-0) scored a home win over Indiana, 45-14.
