Who is the No. 1 team in the country?

In the first BCS Poll recently released, they have the Florida Gators in the No. 1 spot.

According to the AP it's Alabama with the Gators No. 2.

While there isn't a major controversy yet over who is No. 1, Lane Kiffin made it known in his weekly press conference which team gets his vote for the best team in the nation.

"It's obvious that Alabama is the best team in the country," Kiffin said Tuesday. "Just look at the Arkansas game for a reference point. Alabama dominated Arkansas, Florida just barely beat them."

According to Kiffin, Alabama has much better balanced attack than the defending National Champions.

"They have a better balanced team," Kiffin said of Alabama. "Where Florida might one guy that makes all the plays for them on offense, Alabama has several top level weapons. They have two great running backs and their wide receivers are better. They also have one of the best offensive lines in the country."

It's no secret that Kiffin and Urban Meyer aren't the best of friends, this latest revelation by the Volunteer new head coach probably won't get the Kiffins on his Christmas card list either.

"There is no doubt in my mind who the best team in the nation is," Kiffin said. "It's Alabama. We will have to be at our very best when we play them this week to have a chance to win."

Oh did you forget that Meyer said that Kiffin didn't play to win in their game earlier this year, Kiffin remembers and promises his team will give its best effort against the Crimson Tide.
