That Alabama lost really wasn’t shocking. Surprising, sure, but not shocking. The Crimson Tide are tremendously talented, exceedingly well coached, but as LSU showed last week, vulnerable.
The Tide’s run of 10 weeks at No. 1 in the AP college football poll ended Sunday with Oregon moving into the top spot and Alabama falling to fourth. Also, in the new BCS standings, Alabama fell to fourth behind Kansas State, Oregon, and Notre Dame.
