Alabama remained the top team in the AP Top 25 poll Tuesday after its 44–13 drubbing of Miami in Week 1. 

The Crimson Tide earned 59 of 63 first-place votes following their win in Atlanta. Georgia was the only other team to receive a first-place vote. 

Oklahoma advanced to 1–0 in 2021 following its win over Tulane on Saturday, though a narrow victory over the Green Wave knocked the Sooners down to No. 4 from No. 2 in the preseason rankings. Georgia now sits at No. 2 after defeating No. 6 Clemson. 

The SEC leads all conferences with seven top-25 teams. Ohio State is the top Big Ten team at No. 3, while Oregon leads Pac-12 schools at No. 10. ACC schools Clemson and North Carolina both fell in Tuesday's poll, with the Tar Heels dropping to No. 24 after a loss to Virginia Tech.
