Super 16 Poll: Week 5

Seven teams earn 1st place votes, and a new #1

NOTES:

The Super 16 pollsters selected a new No. 1 this week for the first time during the regular season: Alabama. By virtue of Clemson’s close victory over unranked North Carolina, the Crimson Tide jumped the Tigers after easily dispatching Ole Miss. Alabama received 22 first-place votes to Clemson’s 12.

Ohio State, picking up five first-place votes, moved into the No. 3 slot after overwhelming Nebraska in Lincoln. Unbeatens Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Auburn, Wisconsin  and Florida followed, with one-loss Notre Dame at No. 10. Washington re-entered the poll at No. 15 after California lost to Arizona State.

The SEC led all conferences with five teams, followed by the Big Ten with four. The Big 12 and Pac-12 had two each. The ACC, Independents and Mountain West had one each.
