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.
