The Legends Poll Top 25After surviving in a thriller at LSU, Alabama proved once again it’s worthy of the No. 1 ranking in the Legends Poll.

Trailing by three with just over a minute left in the game, quarterback AJ McCarron was able to lead Alabama down the field, and connected with running back T.J. Yeldon for the go-ahead score.

The Crimson Tide received all 17 first-place votes for the seventh straight week.

“I think Alabama has got the total package,” former Syracuse coach Dick MacPherson said. “And I don’t think anybody else has what they have.”

Oregon and Kansas State continued to jockey for second in the top 25 poll. Oregon edged Kansas State this week and jumped back into the No. 2 spot.

Notre Dame remained at No. 4 after it survived a scare of its own, a triple overtime victory over Pittsburgh.

No. 6 Georgia and No. 7 Florida State flip-flopped in the rankings after Georgia’s victory over Ole Miss. The Bulldogs can wrap up the SEC East title with a win over embattled rival Auburn.

Florida, Clemson and Louisville rounded out the top 10.

No. 20 Louisiana Tech also jumped five spots, but No. 17 UCLA was the biggest mover in the rankings, vaulting back into the top 25 after a 66-10 victory over Arizona.

Texas and TCU were also newcomers to the rankings.

No. 23 Mississippi State fell seven spots in the rankings after suffering its second straight loss.

Texas Tech, Oklahoma State and West Virginia dropped out of the poll.
