LegendsPoll.jpg

Alabama strengthened its grip on the No. 1 spot in the Legends Poll Top 8. Despite not playing, the Crimson Tide received 11 of the 14 first place votes. 

Idle Oklahoma moved up a spot to No. 2 and faces a tough road test at Texas Christian this upcoming weekend. 


Florida State dropped another spot to No. 3 after a lackluster performance at NC State.  The Seminoles’ defense struggled at times, but Florida State managed to hold on against a team they typically struggle with on the road. Oregon and Auburn rounded out the Top 5. 

No. 6, Texas A&M kept its spot after grasping a 35-28, come from behind, victory over Arkansas in Dallas. The Aggies were followed by Baylor and Michigan State. Notre Dame dropped out of the Top 8 despite a 31-15 victory over Syracuse.  Mississippi State and UCLA also received votes.
