Bama’s march toward the greatest season in college football history continues

The Alabama Crimson Tide has won its last four games by a combined score of 201-33.

Yesterday it dismantled the defending national champion LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge 55-17 while putting up 650 total yards of offense. The Tide’s multiple Heisman-worthy offensive players show no signs of letting up.

Nick Saban’s team appears unstoppable and naturally sit atop this week’s Yellowhammer Power Rankings.

Here is how are experts cast their ballots.

Paul Shashy’s ballot:

1. Alabama
2. Notre Dame
3. Clemson
4. Ohio State
5. Texas AM
6. Florida
7. Cincinnati
8. Miami

The lowdown: Alabama remains number one after crushing Ed Orgeron’s struggling LSU team, while Notre Dame, Clemson, and Ohio State all remained steady after beating the brakes off their opponents. BYU fell out of the power rankings because of their close loss to a strong Coastal Carolina team, and Texas A&M jumped Florida due to their fourth-quarter smacking of Auburn on the road.

This upcoming week will be pivotal for Cincinnati and Miami, especially their playoff dreams, as they each have their biggest regular season games of the year.

Zack Shaw’s ballot:

1. Alabama
2. Notre Dame
3. Clemson
4. Ohio State
5. Texas A&M
6. Florida
7. Miami
8. Cincinnati

The lowdown: In an era where football is heavily skewed toward offense, it seems less likely with each passing week that there is a team in college football that can go toe to toe with the Crimson Tide. Alabama’s incredible amount of talent combined with Offensive Coordinator Steve Sarkisian’s scheme is lighting the college football world on fire. Another Alabama national championship feels inevitable.
