Alabama is a near-unanimous No. 1 at the midway point of the season.

After beating Tennessee 49-10, the Tide got all but one first-place vote in the post-Week 7 AP poll. Michigan, which was off on Saturday, got the only other first place vote.

Clemson, which beat North Carolina State in overtime at home on Saturday, fell a spot to No. 4 from last week. The Tigers were jumped by the Wolverines, who were at No. 4 a week ago.
