Alabama football continues to move up, slowly but surely, in college football rankings.
Alabama (4-1, 2-0 SEC) defeated Mississippi State 40-17 on Saturday at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Mississippi.
Other ranked SEC teams in the coaches poll include No. 1 Georgia, No. 15 Ole Miss, No. 18 Tennessee, No. 22 Missouri and No. 23 LSU. In the AP poll, No. 1 Georgia, No. 16 Ole Miss, No. 20 Kentucky, No. 21 Missouri, No. 22 Tennessee and No. 23 LSU are the other SEC teams who landed in the top 25.
Next on the schedule for the Crimson Tide will be Texas A&M (4-1, 2-0) on Saturday (2:30 p.m. CBS) at Kyle Field in College Station, Texas. The Aggies received votes in the coaches poll and would have been ranked No. 28 if it extended past 25 teams. The same was the case in the AP poll.
