Coaching legends rank their top 25

Alabama held on to the top spot in the Legends Poll, after a slate of lackluster games over the weekend. The first eight teams did not change order from last week's poll.

No. 9 Texas A&M swapped positions with Georgia, overtaking the ninth position in this week's poll. No. 5 LSU looked impressive as they beat SEC rival Auburn at home 35-21.

"LSU's running game and passing game looks more cohesive under their new coordinator, Cam Cameron," former Auburn coach Pat Dye said. "They have all the pieces to make a great football team.  Their running back (Jeremy Hill) was outstanding today against Auburn.  I put him up there with Georgia's running back, Gurley."

The teams from 11 to 19 remain unchanged with the exception of Michigan.  Michigan continued to slide down the poll as it escaped another upset bid this week at Connecticut.  The Wolverines had to come from behind in the 24-21 win.

Texas Tech and Georgia Tech made their first appearance in the Legends Poll this season at No. 24 and 25, respectively.  Arizona State and Auburn dropped out of the poll this week after falling from the ranks of the unbeaten.
