NEW YORK -- Alabama and LSU are back atop The Associated Press college football poll, holding down Nos. 1 and 2 the way they did most of last season.
The Crimson Tide is No. 1 for the third straight week, and it was almost unanimous. Alabama received 58 of 60 first-place votes. LSU got the other two.
The Southeastern Conference rivals were ranked first and second for eight weeks...
Alabama QB A.J. McCarron before the Alabama-Michigan game.
There were two big questions that the media wanted to know when Alabama starting quarterback A.J. McCarron popped into the Alabama media room after practice on Tuesday afternoon. One was about his right throwing hand, which got stepped on while recovering a fumble during the Tide's victory over Arkansas. "...
In the 1940s, Auburn – then known as Alabama Polytechnic Institute – saw that its football program was going no where, while the Crimson Tide had been a Rose Bowl staple and had become a national powerhouse. Auburn realized, correctly, that playing Alabama could elevate the Tigers. And so, in 1948, the series was resumed with Bama taking a 55-0 victory.
Discussion of “first” around Alabama football these days is ordinarily about the Crimson Tide’s national ranking, or perhaps the hope for where Bama will end up at the end of the season. But for many players, mostly freshmen and redshirt freshmen, there are all sorts of firsts going on.
Alabama coach Nick Saban says there's plenty of room for improvement even if the issues aren't reflected on the scoreboard.
He'll have a hard time convincing opponents.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide has outscored its opponents 128-14 and scored 94 points since the defense last gave up a point, with 14 seconds left in the third quarter in the opener against Michigan.
Alabama commit Altee Tenpenny has been to Arkansas on numerous occasions, but he took a special interest in seeing the Hogs host the Crimson Tide on Saturday. While the game was as one-sided as can be, this four-star talent is still dealing with “a hard decision to make.”
NEW ORLEANS, La. - Raheem Falkins is committed to Alabama and he plans to move to Tuscaloosa in January. He is set on playing for the Crimson Tide.
Notebook: Despite three consecutive impressive wins, head coach Nick Saban said Monday there are several areas where Alabama needs to improve. He said people respond better when things go bad, but he wants his players to respond "even when things don't go bad."
After having what's believed to be PCL surgery last week, Alabama running back/fullback/H-back Jalston Fowler is doing "fine" and will make a "full recovery," per head coach Nick Saban
Quite a few first- and second-year players were able to get playing time in Alabama's 52-0 route of Arkansas last Saturday. But Nick Saban wasn't pleased with the way some of his youngsters prepared--or didn't prepare--for the game.
No matter how much you dislike Alabama or the SEC, at this point it's hard to argue that the Crimson Tide aren't a cut above the rest of the teams in the nation. Oregon moves to No.2 after USC slips up and loses to Stanford, but if there is a team that could challenge the Crimson Tide defense, it's probably the Oregon Ducks and their astounding team speed. LSU is very...
