Legends Poll: Oregon stumbles after loss to Stanford

The No. 2 spot in the Legends Poll has a new name for the first time this season.

Oregon suffered its first loss of the year Thursday night, 26-20, to Stanford, which opened the door for Florida State to climb in the Legends Poll.

The Seminoles, who trounced Wake Forest, 59-3, are now second only to top-ranked Alabama, which this week received its first unanimous No. 1 ranking of the season.

The Crimson Tide made a statement with a 38-17 victory over LSU Saturday night. The loss sent No. 15 LSU tumbling four spots.

No. 3 Ohio State, No. 4 Baylor and No. 5 Stanford all moved up a spot in the rankings this week. Oregon fell four spots to No. 6.

No. 7 Auburn continued its quiet climb up the rankings and will face another tough when No. 25 Georgia visits next weekend.

Clemson, Missouri and Texas A&M rounded out the top 10.

No. 17 Oklahoma dropped seven spots after No. 4 Baylor undressed the Sooners in Waco on Thursday —- the biggest drop in the rankings this week.

No. 24 Texas was the lone newcomer in the top 25 this week. Texas Tech dropped out.
