Week 1 of the 2021 college football season is almost in the books, but FOX Sports analyst Joel Klatt already knows who he’s voting for in his top 10 poll.
Taking to Twitter this morning, Klatt released his first in-season top 10 poll. Naturally, the Alabama Crimson Tide got top billing after trouncing the University of Miami.
Here is Joel Klatt’s full top 10 poll:
As of 9/4 my top 10 in CFB

Cincinnati earned their top 10 contender status with a strong win over Miami (OH). Florida and Iowa similarly earned their rankings with double-digit wins over Florida Atlantic and Indiana respectively.
But Klatt made his list before seeing Notre Dame play their first game, which happens today against Florida State.
The list has an understandably strong SEC flavor to it. Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Texas A&M should all be in contention for the SEC title all the way to the end of the season.
Alabama crossed paths with both Florida and Texas A&M this year. Wins over both of those teams will likely ensure Alabama’s spot in the College Football Playoff, regardless of whether the Tide win the SEC Championship Game.
But at this point, we’re all just waiting for someone to truly challenge Alabama’s might.
