Alabama isn’t the No. 1 team in the FPI.
Alabama is No. 1 in the preseason top 25s and the Crimson Tide will certainly stay there when the new polls come out on Tuesday.
There’s one poll Nick Saban’s team isn’t at the top of, though – the ESPN Football Power Index.
Ohio State opened the year as the No. 1 team in the FPI and the Buckeyes are still atop the rankings after Week 1.
OSU opened the year with a 49-21 win against Indiana in Bloomington, while Alabama opened its year with a 24-7 win against Florida State.
Ohio State’s FPI is 29.9. Alabama’s FPI is 26.7.
