Week 5 of the college football season is in the books, and we’re starting to see which teams are true college football playoff contenders and which are pretenders.
In this week’s SB Nation FanPulse survey, there was a new top ranked team for the first time this season, as Alabama overtook Clemson for the top spot.
Here’s a look at how the nation voted.
It comes as no surprise Alabama, who also overtook Clemson for the top spot in this week’s AP poll, jumped the defending champion Tigers. The Tide have been unstoppable so far this season, while Clemson barely survived a North Carolina team that has not been ranked since 2016.
As for Kentucky fans, they also ranked Alabama as the nation’s top ranked team. However they did not just drop Clemson down one spot like the national poll. Here’s a look at how the Big Blue Nation Voted.
- Alabama Crimson Tide (2 last week)
- Georgia Bulldogs (3)
- LSU Tigers (4)
- Clemson Tigers (1)
- Auburn Tigers (7)
- Ohio State Buckeyes (6)
- Oklahoma Sooners (5)
- Florida Gators (8)
- Wisconsin Badgers (9)
- Penn State Nittany Lions (12)
- Oregon Ducks (14)
- Texas Longhorns (9)
- Notre Dame Fighting Irish (10)
- California Golden Bears (Unranked)
- Iowa Hawkeyes (18)
- Boise State Broncos (21)
- Washington Huskies (23)

- Utah Utes (13)
- Michigan Wolverines (16)

It’s safe to say this is an interesting top 25 the Big Blue Nation put together. Oklahoma dropped two spots despite blowing out Kansas, California made the list at 14 despite coming off a home loss to Arizona State, and Virginia jumped from 24 to 18 despite losing to Notre Dame.
Stay weird, Big Blue Nation.
