Super 16 Poll
LSU Solidify Top Spot, Gophers Jump
LSU takes the top spot for a second straight week after defeating previously unbeaten No. 2 Alabama on the Crimson Tide’s home field. The Tigers received 42 of a possible 46 first-place votes. The 46-41 loss dropped Alabama from No. 2 to No. 4. Ohio State and Clemson both moved up to the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively.
The other major development in the poll was Minnesota’s upset of Penn State. With the victory, the Golden Gophers jumped from No. 13 to No.7. Previously unbeaten Penn State fell to No. 10. Otherwise, the same 16 teams remained in the poll from last week with minor movements.
The SEC and Big Ten each had five teams in the poll. The Big 12 and Pac-12 had two teams each. The ACC and Independents had one each.
