Alabama football is still No. 1 in the nation after two off weeks.

On Sunday, the Amway Coaches Poll — powered by USA TODAY Sports — has Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide as the top-ranked team in college football. Alabama had a bye week after defeating Mississippi State and while it was supposed to face Louisiana State University on last week, a spike in COVID cases for the Tigers led to the matchup getting postponed.

This week, the Tide takes on Kentucky at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
