Power Rankings Week 4: No change for Alabama

Either the big test for Alabama's offense never came against Vanderbilt on Saturday, or the Tide aced it fast. Bama scored 31 points by halftime on its way toward crushing the Commodores.

USF defense practically perfect

South Florida shut down Temple in all aspects, posting a defensive efficiency of 99.99 percent. Meanwhile, Alabama's defense was even more efficient than its offense, which wasn't far off perfect in its own right.

After beating up Vanderbilt 59-0, Alabama has not only moved up to the No. 1 spot in FPI but it also has a 2.2-point edge over No. 2 team Ohio State. Though the Buckeyes and Sooners also won yesterday, neither were as impressive as the Crimson Tide.

Alabama has now won 19 straight games against SEC East opponents. The Crimson Tide's last loss to an East team came in 2010 to South Carolina. Other than Nick Saban, the only other SEC head coach at that time who's still in his current job is Mississippi State's Dan Mullen.

Alabama's Da'Ron Payne said it was a bad mistake by Vanderbilt to do "all that talking" before the game.

The infatuation with Bo Scarbrough is understandable, but Damien Harris is as good as they come at RB. A patient runner who can do it all in terms of blocking, pass-catching, etc.

Alabama, which was down five linebackers last week, expects to get three of those back Saturday against Vanderbilt. Rashaan Evans, Anfernee Jennings and Dylan Moses all went through pre-game warmups and are expected to play.
