The Legends Poll Top 25: College Football Week 12

Top25LegendsPoll.jpg

Alabama and Florida State appear to be on a crash course to meet in the BCS championship game, remaining as the top two teams in the Legends Poll this week.

Second-ranked FSU gained ground on No. 1 Alabama in the rankings after the Crimson Tide’s lackluster 20-7 performance against Mississippi State. The Seminoles picked up two first place votes after pounding Syracuse 59-3.

Unbeaten Ohio State and Baylor remained at No. 3 and No. 4. And Oregon rounded out the top 5.

No. 6 Auburn moved up a spot after its miraculous victory over rival Georgia. Auburn was followed by Clemson, Missouri, Stanford and South Carolina in the rankings.

No. 23 USC moved into the rankings this week after knocking off then-No. 5 Stanford at home Saturday night. And No. 24 Duke made its first ever appearance in the Legends Poll top 25 after beating Miami, which fell out of the rankings.
