1. Alabama Crimson Tide (4-0, 1-0 SEC)

Last Week’s Result: Beat Florida 42-21

Make all the Lane Kiffin jokes you want, but the Alabama offense has been the most impressive unit in the Southeastern Conference this season. Florida’s defense may not be quite as good as they were in 2012 or 2013, but the Gators still have as much talent on the defensive side of the ball as any team in the nation – and they were absolutely shredded on Saturday.

Amari Cooper is playing like he has the Biletnikoff Award wrapped up and now has placed himself in the mix for the Heisman Trophy. After snaring ten passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns against the Gators, Cooper has 43 catches for 655 yards and five TDs through four games. Wow.

Blake Sims has not only established himself as the starting quarterback in Tuscaloosa, but he also had one of the best starts in school history Saturday. Sims completed 23 of 33 passes Saturday for 445 yards and four touchdowns against Florida and now has 1,091 yards and ten touchdowns through the first four weeks of the season.

Alabama will be off this Saturday in preparation for a road trip to Oxford, Mississippi and the (likely to be) undefeated and top ten ranked Ole Miss Rebels.
