The Alabama Crimson Tide is the most storied program in college football, according to a poll released by ESPN SportsNation.
With 38 percent of the nearly 70,000 votes, Alabama topped Notre Dame in the poll by a slim margin. The Fighting Irish garnered 35 percent of the votes.
Alabama was tops in the southeast, obviously, but also grabbed a couple of New England states, as well as Wisconsin, Montana and Wyoming. Surprisingly, the Crimson Tide also picked up Alaska. Notre Dame was dominant in the west and northeast, and took Hawaii.
Michigan was a distant third with 13 percent, and Southern Cal took a scant 9 percent of the vote.
Oklahoma, with 5 percent of the vote, took only the state of, you guessed it, Oklahoma.
