No one can argue at this point about which team is number one in college football. It is without a doubt the Alabama Crimson Tide. They easily have the best offensive line in the nation led by center Barrett Jones (Sr. 6-5 302, no sacks allowed) and the rest of the line is loaded with definite future NFL talent. The Tide are currently 25th overall in rushing with 217.2 yards per game. The Alabama defense is stifling once again and any worries of how the newcomers would do are basically forgotten. They lead almost every major defensive statistical category including allowing just 55.3 rush yards and 125.8 pass yards per game, along with 7.5 points allowed per game. The most significant win on Alabama’s resume so far may be the season opener against Michigan in a 41-14 blow out.

Somebody painted the Arizona State 'A' green

This is the kinda awesome college football fan warfare that we need more of. The Arizona State “A” outside Sun Devil Stadium was vandalized prior to tonight’s game between ASU and the Oregon Ducks.
