Super 16 Poll
Utes crack Top 10, Bama/LSU in near dead heat
The week before the biggest game of the 2019 season, LSU has moved past Alabama in the Super 16 Rankings. The Tigers will be No. 1 in their showdown on Saturday with No. 2 Alabama in Tuscaloosa after picking up four more first-place votes than a week ago. That’s despite both teams being idle.
Only Clemson, among the Top 5 teams played over the weekend. And Ohio State, Clemson and Penn State remained in slots 3 through 5. Georgia defeated Florida in Jacksonville, knocking the Gators back to No. 10 and the Bulldogs taking the No. 6 spot as the highest ranked one-loss team.
SMU fell at Memphis and dropped out of the poll. Wisconsin re-entered at No. 16.
The SEC and Big Ten led all conferences with five teams each. The Big 12 and Pac-12 had two each. The ACC and Independents one each.
