Alabama Top Team in the Land

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) -

Alabama is No. 1 at being No. 1.

The Crimson Tide (13-1) was

voted national champion by The Associated Press for the ninth time, more than

any other program in college football, after routing Notre Dame 42-14 on Monday

night.

Notre Dame, No. 1 coming into the BCS

championship, dropped to No. 4.

The Tide entered the title game with as

many AP titles as the Fighting Irish, and emphatically broke the tie for first.

It's Alabama's second straight title and third in four years. The only other

team to win three AP titles in four seasons was Notre Dame from 1946-49.

Oregon (12-1) finished second, and

undefeated Ohio State (12-0), banned from the postseason because of NCAA

sanctions was third. Georgia and Texas A&M tied for fifth.

Stanford, South Carolina, Florida and Florida

St. round out the top 10.
