Sweet home video game numbers.

NCAA Football: Clemson at North Carolina Nell Redmond-USA TODAY Sports

After dismantling a hapless Ole Miss defense and benefiting from a Clemson close call against North Carolina, the Alabama Crimson Tide have taken over the No. 1 spot in the national AND Red Cup Rebellion FanPulse Top 25.

The Tide shredded the Rebels’ secondary en route to a comfortable 59-31 win and are now the top team in all the land. But, unlike the rest of the country, the Red Cup faithful have Georgia at No. 2, Clemson at No. 3, LSU at No. 4, and Jalen Hurts and Oklahoma rounding out the top five.

And after embarrassing Nebraska in Lincoln, Ohio State continues to just hang around the top five, waiting patiently for someone to falter.

Here is what the rest of the nation thinks of the College Football Top 25 after five weeks:

The buy-in from the fans has continued to slide since the week two win over Arkansas. Let’s see where this is next week after a big-time conference game against the Vanderbilt Commodores.
