Alabama is the consensus No.1 team in college football as it stands today, but the question still remains whether this team is overrated or simply untested.
The Alabama Crimson Tide has been on top of the college football world for the past five seasons. A 10-2 run in 2008 was a precursor to two national titles and four consecutive seasons with 10 wins or more.
This season the Tide has ran the table in very convincing fashion with the closest win coming against Ole Miss by 19 points.
Despite the convincing wins, Alabama has yet to play a highly respected opponent on the national stage. They did defeat Mississippi State when the Bulldogs were No. 11 in the BCS, but that isn’t being lauded as a major victory for the Tide.
