The Legends Poll Top 25: College Football Week 8

2013 The Legends Poll Top 25: College Football Week 7

Saturday brought chaos to college football, creating nearly a complete overhaul in the rankings after six of the top 10 teams went down in defeat.

No. 3 Florida State made the most impressive statement of the weekend, demolishing then-No. 3 Clemson 51-14 in Death Valley. The Seminoles became the first team to score 50 or more points at Clemson. The loss dropped the Tigers to No. 10.

Top-ranked Alabama managed to tighten its stranglehold on the No. 1 spot in the Legends Poll. The Crimson Tide received 15 of the 16 first place votes and remain the lone SEC team in the top 10.

No. 2 Oregon stayed unbeaten as it awaits a showdown with No. 15 UCLA next weekend. UCLA suffered its first loss at the hands of No. 5 Stanford Saturday but poses a challenge for Oregon.

Ohio State held on against Iowa at home and stayed put at No. 4.

No. 6 Baylor made its highest ever appearance in the Legends Poll and first ever showing in the top 10. No. 7 Missouri, No. 8 Miami (FL) and No. 9 Texas Tech all made their top 10 appearances this season.
