The Ducks and Beavers enter the first BCS standings ranked in the top 10.

The first BCS standings of the 2012 college football season were released on Sunday night. Four teams from the Pac-12 were in the top 25, including the hometown Oregon Ducks and Oregon St. Beavers. The USC Trojans and Stanford Cardinal were the other two.

The Ducks enter at No. 3 in the standings despite being ranked second in the polls last week. They have a tough road test against Arizona State looming next weekend. The Beavers are eighth in the BCS, which is their highest ranking in years. USC is ranked 10th, which is a bit of a disappointment given their No. 1 ranking to begin the year. Stanford is 20th despite playing one of the toughest schedules in the nation.

The top 10 of the BCS goes like this: Alabama, Florida, Oregon, Kansas State, Notre Dame, LSU, South Carolina, Oregon State, Oklahoma and USC. A look at this week's full rankings can be found here, courtesy of SB Nation.
