Alabama Takes Over Top Spot in AP Poll

The Alabama Crimson Tide have leapfrogged the Southern California Trojans in this week's college football AP Poll to the #1 position in the country.  The Tide, who embarrassed Michigan Saturday night on national television, were the #2 team in the nation to open the season but their domination of the Wolverines, who were ranked #8 entering the season, apparently changed the mind of the voters.  Alabama got excellent performances from quarterback AJ McCarron, running back TJ Yeldon, and their complex, pro-style defense on Saturday night in their 41-14 win.
The 2011 National Champions begin their home schedule with a game against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Saturday afternoon at Bryan-Denny Stadium.
