After another eye-opening offensive performance, Baylor moved up another spot in the Legends Poll and made its first ever top-five appearance. The Legends Poll is conducted by former coaches who continue to follow college football each week.

Alabama continued as the number one team in the Legends Poll rankings, followed by Oregon, Florida State, and Ohio State. The Crimson Tide received 15 of the 16 first place votes. On a weekend when Bobby Bowden made his return to Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee to see FSU rout North Carolina State, the Seminoles gained ground on Oregon.

The fifth-ranked Baylor Bears continued their dominance at Kansas, pounding the Jayhawks 59-14 on the road, setting up a Big 12 showdown with Oklahoma on Thursday, Nov. 7.

No. 6 Stanford dropped a spot and was followed by Miami (FL), Clemson, Auburn and Oklahoma. Ninth-ranked Auburn moved into the top 10 for the first time this season.

No. 11 Missouri tumbled four spots in the rankings following an overtime defeat at the hands of No. 15 South Carolina. No. 14 Texas Tech also fell out of the top 10 after suffering its first loss at Oklahoma.

No. 22 Michigan State and No. 24 Central Florida were newcomers to the poll this week.

Virginia Tech and Arizona State dropped out of the top 25.
