It was a statement game for Alabama and that statement was loud and clear: We deserve to be No. 1.
Why change your vote?
If the question refers to the Associated Press media poll, USC should be No. 1. If you're talking about the USA Today coaches poll, then Louisiana State should be No. 1.
USC opened No. 1 in the AP poll and did nothing to earn a demotion while blasting Hawaii by 39 points. LSU easily defeated North Texas, 41-14, also doing nothing to earn a demotion. So floppers, why change your vote?
Alabama was impressive in routing a top-10 Michigan team. But when the top three teams all win impressively, why make a change in Week 1?
The point is, if you voted one way before the season started, no team in the top three did anything that should change your mind.
