College Football Rankings, Week 13: Oregon Gains In USA Today Coaches Poll

The latest college football polls are out today, and the Pac-10 continues to have three teams ranked by the USA Today coaches poll. Oregon and Stanford were able to strengthen their top ten positions, as Oregon gained two first place votes from last week, and Stanford moved up from ninth to eighth. Here are is the new USA Today coaches poll top 25:

  1. Oregon (48 first place votes)
  2. Auburn (4)
  3. Boise State (5)
  4. TCU (2)
  5. Wisconsin
  6. LSU
  7. Ohio State
  8. Stanford
  9. Oklahoma State
  10. Michigan State
  11. Alabama
  12. Arkansas
  13. Oklahoma
  14. Virginia Tech
  15. Nebraska
  16. Missouri
  17. South Carolina
  18. Texas A&M
  19. Nevada
  20. Arizona
  21. Florida St
  22. Utah
  23. North Carolina St
  24. Iowa
  25. Mississippi State

Nebraska moved down from eighth to 15th after their 9-6 loss to Texas A&M. Arizona, which had a bye this week, moved up from 23rd to 20th. These three teams are the only teams in the Pac-10 currently bowl eligible, and it appears they might only be joined by one other team, as California or maybe Washington may join them. However, if both Oregon and Stanford win out, there is a decent chance the conference will have two teams in BCS bowls for just the third time in 13 seasons.
