The Legends Poll Top 25: College Football Week 5

Top25LegendsPoll_0_0.jpg

Georgia made a statement with a signature win over LSU in Athens this weekend and jumped four spots to No. 6 in the Legends Poll.

Quarterback Aaron Murray led Georgia on a game-winning drive with just under two minutes remaining and the Bulldog defense held on for the 44-41 victory.

"I think (Murray) has been overlooked a little bit this year," former Georgia coach Vince Dooley said. "But I think he'll get more attention if he continues the pace he's on. He's had four outstanding games."

Alabama held on to the top spot for a third straight week, once again receiving 14 first-place votes. Oregon, Clemson and Ohio State followed, and Stanford made its first top five appearance of the season. With the loss, LSU dropped five spots to No. 10 in the rankings.

No. 12 Oklahoma moved up three spots with a commanding win at Notre Dame, and unbeaten Miami continued to climb the rankings at No. 13.
