The Legends Poll Top 25: College Football Week 11

LegendsPoll332.jpg

The Oregon Ducks have overtaken the No. 1 spot -- just barely edging second-ranked Kansas State -- thanks Texas A&M’s upset of the Crimson Tide.

Oregon received 10 of the 17 first-place votes.

“I have been very impressed with Oregon all year,” former USC coach John Robinson said. “More than I thought I would be. The interesting thing about Oregon’s offense is they block the perimeter. Remember back when the wishbone teams were just starting how dramatically those wide outs blocked the perimeter and you just couldn’t stop them outside? That’s what Oregon does.”

No. 4 Alabama slid three spots after losing its stranglehold on the top spot for the entire calendar year of 2012.

Unbeaten Notre Dame moved up as well, one spot ahead of Alabama at No. 3. Georgia rounded out the top five, moving past twice-beaten LSU, which slid to No. 6. No. 9 Texas A&M and No. 10 Florida made five SEC teams in the top 10. No. 7 Florida State and No. 8 Clemson represented the ACC near the top of the rankings.

No. 18 Louisville took the biggest tumble in the top 25 this week, dropping eight spots after Syracuse handed the Cardinals their first loss of the season.

Texas A&M was among the biggest movers in the rankings, jumping four spots following its 29-24 upset in Tuscaloosa.
