Florida State inches closer to Alabama in Legends Poll

Alabama and Florida State appear to be on a crash course to meet in the BCS championship game, remaining as the top two teams in the Legends Poll this week.

Second-ranked FSU gained ground on No. 1 Alabama in the rankings after the Crimson Tide’s lackluster 20-7 performance against Mississippi State on Saturday. The Seminoles picked up two first place votes after pounding Syracuse 59-3.

Unbeaten Ohio State and Baylor remained at No. 3 and No. 4, and  Oregon rounded out the Top 5.

No. 6 Auburn moved up a spot after its miraculous victory over rival Georgia. It was followed by Clemson, Missouri, Stanford and South Carolina in the rankings.

USC moved into the rankings this week, to No. 23, after knocking off former No. 5 Stanford at home Saturday night. And No. 24 Duke made its first-ever appearance in the Legends Poll Top 25 after beating Miami, which fell out of the rankings.

No. 25 Minnesota was the other newcomer this week, as Texas and Georgia dropped out of the Top 25.
