The Alabama Crimson Tide entered this week ranked No. 5 in the nation, following a close, yet devastating loss to an unranked Texas A&M team. Yesterday, they earned themselves another win, in blowout fashion, on the road against Mississippi State.
There will be a bit of a shakeup within the top-five, as No. 2 Iowa suffered a tough loss at home against unranked Purdue.
Well, according to ESPN’s latest college football power rankings, the Crimson Tide move up to the No. 3 spot. This moves Alabama above Oklahoma, but right behind No 2 Cincinnati and No. 1 Georgia.
Alabama will take on Tennessee next week as they look to sweep the remainder of their schedule to get to the 2021 SEC Championship game.
