Baylor breaks into Legends Poll's Top 5

Baylor climbed another spot in the Legends Poll, making its first ever Top 5 appearance, with another eye-popping offensive performance.

The fifth-ranked Bears continued their dominance Saturday at Kansas, pounding the Jayhawks, 59-14, on the road. The win sets up a Big 12 showdown with Oklahoma Thursday, Nov. 11.

No. 1 Alabama remained atop the Legends Poll rankings, followed still by Oregon, Florida State and Ohio State.

Florida State continued gaining ground on Oregon with its 49-17 win over North Carolina State in Legends Poll voter Bobby Bowden’s return to Doak Campbell Stadium. FSU honored the former coach, who retired in 2009.

No. 6 Stanford dropped a spot and was followed by Miami, 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 a heartbreaking 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.

  • Why do wolves howl?

    Of all the myths that dog the wolf, none is more widely accepted than the idea that wolves howl at the moon. Images of wolves with their heads upturned, singing at the night sky, are as unquestioned as a goldfish's three-second memory or a dog's color-blindness (both also myths).

    One of the biggest mysteries is why the disease comes and goes, and then comes and goes again. People tend to experience intense allergies between the ages of 5 and 16, then get a couple of decades off before the symptoms return in the 30s, only to diminish around retirement age.

  • Stepping forward: The real Colbert

    Letterman changed the late-night TV game between his run on NBC's "Late Night" and starting the "Late Show" franchise in 1993. And while it's tough to replace a pop-culture icon, Colbert, in terms of pedigree and sense of humor, makes the most sense.
