The new FanSided Top 25 has been released, and while the SEC continues to reign supreme, there are three Pac-12 teams still in the Top 10. Oregon State is obviously the biggest surprise, as this is the first time they have been 6-0 in over 100 years. Oregon stayed ranked at No. 2 behind Alabama, while USC moved up two spots to 11th.
As for the top six teams, they remained exactly in the same order as they were a week ago, though Ohio State drops from a two-way tie with Oregon State at 7th all the way down to 10th, tucked in just behind USC.
The Beavers could be the team that is arguably the most undervalued in this week’s poll, sitting behind the one-loss LSU Tigers. The Beavers first began their statement-making season with a win over then-No. 13 Wisconsin, and they have been rolling ever since.
Stanford is the fourth and final Pac-12 team ranked by FanSided, sitting at 19, while UCLA, Arizona and Arizona State all find themselves in the ‘others receiving votes’ section. The Trojans head to Tucson to play Arizona on Saturday.
