While Alabama didn't look stellar on offense this past weekend against Virginia Tech, its defense and special teams play were more than adequate to get the job done against the Hokies. As such, the Tide remain at the top of the AP Poll for the second straight week.
The other big winners of the opening weekend of college football include LSU, which defeated TCU in Arlington, and Clemson, which defeated Georgia at home.
Without further ado, here is the AP Poll for the week of September 3rd, 2013.
3. Ohio State
6. South Carolina
7. Texas A&M
10. Florida State
13. Oklahoma State
14. Notre Dame
