MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Alabama is No. 1 at being No. 1.
The Crimson Tide (13-1) was voted national champion by The Associated Press for the ninth time, more than any other program in college football, after routing Notre Dame 42-14 on Monday night.
Notre Dame, No. 1 coming into the BCS championship, dropped to No. 4.
The Tide entered the title game with as many AP titles as the Fighting Irish, and emphatically broke the tie for first. It's Alabama's second straight title and third in four years. The only other team to win three AP titles in four seasons was Notre Dame from 1946-49.
Oregon (12-1) finished second, and undefeated Ohio State (12-0), banned from the postseason because of NCAA sanctions was third. Georgia and Texas A&M tied for fifth.
