Florida State holds No. 3 in Legends Poll with dominating win over Miami

It seems every team is gunning for No. 1 Alabama, and Florida State once again proved it belongs among the top contenders with another dominating performance against a Top 10 opponent.

No. 3 Florida State dismantled Miami, 41-14, in Tallahassee on Saturday night in front of a record crowd, sending the Hurricanes tumbling eight spots to No. 15 in the Legends Poll.

Alabama and No. 2 Oregon were idle over the weekend. But Oregon has its chance to make a statement in front of the nation Thursday night when it takes on No. 6 Stanford.

Besides Miami, there were no other changes in the top 14 positions in the Legends Poll.

No. 4 Ohio State continued to dominate inferior opponents behind the sterling play of Braxton Miller in a 56-0 win over Purdue, and No. 17 Michigan State stepped forward as the toughest possible opponent for the Buckeyes. The Spartans took care of in-state rival Michigan, knocking the Wolverines out of the Legends Poll.

Georgia and Arizona State moved back into the Top 25 at No. 24 and No. 25, respectively.
