The Legends Poll Top 8 College Football Rankings: Week 12

LegendsPoll.jpg

Alabama is back in the driver’s seat in the SEC West and has moved back into a familiar spot atop the Legends Poll Top 8.

Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide knocked off Mississippi State this weekend, 25-20, vaulting No. 2 Florida State on the way to replacing Mississippi State at No. 1.

Florida State found itself down two scores in the first half yet again — this time against Miami — but managed to come all the way back and notch another road win, 30-26.

Idle Oregon moved up a spot to No. 3.

No. 4 Mississippi State fell three spots, followed by No. 5 TCU, which struggled on the road against Kansas.

No. 6 Ohio State moved up another spot in the rankings, swapping places with Baylor.

And Georgia made its first Top 8 appearance after a resounding 34-7 win over Auburn. The Bulldogs still need a Missouri loss to find their way into the SEC championship game.

Arizona State fell out of the rankings this week following its loss at Oregon State.
