AP, coaches polls still have Alabama No. 1

Alabama’s open week didn’t change its standing in the two polls released Sunday morning.

It remains No. 1 in the AP and coaches polls followed by Clemson, Notre Dame and LSU as the top five remained unchanged.

The Tide (8-0) got all but four first-place votes for the second straight week with Clemson getting the others.

Fourth-ranked LSU is set to present Alabama its biggest challenge of the season at 7 p.m. CT Saturday in Baton Rouge. Another future opponent, Mississippi State, jumped back into both polls at No. 21 after beating Texas A&M on Saturday night.

The first College Football Playoff standings of the season will be released Tuesday.
