Alabama beat the Tennessee Volunteers for the fifteenth straight time on Saturday, coming away with a 52-24 victory against the Vols in Tuscaloosa.

While it wasn’t always pretty, the Crimson Tide had a strong showing in the fourth quarter to pull away and make the game unwinnable for the Vols late.

This performance, coupled with a poor showing from the Oklahoma Sooners against Kansas, helped the Crimson Tide gain some ground with the voters.

Here’s the Week 9 AP Poll.
