This historic milestone comes in wake of a stellar stretch for Alabama, which also included a Purdue loss to Northwestern Sunday.

The No. 1 ranking adds yet another resume piece to head coach Nate Oats' tenure in Tuscaloosa, after a come-from-behind win at Auburn Saturday.

The Tide sits at 22-3 overall on the season, with a perfect 12-0 record in conference play as of February 13th and is projected to claim the top seed in March Madness per multiple basketball experts.

Alabama travels to Knoxville on Wednesday for a clash with the defensively stacked Tennessee Volunteers, before returning home Saturday to face the unranked Georgia Bulldogs.
