BCS rankings 2012: Oregon stays put, Oregon State falls

Jonathan Ferrey

Oregon stays at fourth, Oregon State tumbles out of the top 10 following a loss to Washington.

After shellacking the Colorado Buffaloes in Eugene, the Oregon Ducks stay right where they were last week in the BCS rankings at fourth, just behind the team who was previously looking up at them, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Although the Irish came away with their biggest win of the year last weekend over the Oklahoma Sooners, Addicted To Quack still thinks the Ducks are a better team:

Notre Dame had its best game of the year in beating Oklahoma. They still don't have Kansas State's resume, and Alabama and Oregon beat them in the eye test, but they took a big step forward in their quest for the BCS Championship game.

Oregon will play their most important game of the season this weekend as they travel to Los Angeles to face a No. 17 USC Trojans team still smarting from a 39-36 upset at the hands of the Arizona Wildcats.

Meanwhile, Oregon State became the second top-10 upset victim of the Washington Huskies at CenturyLink Field this year. Beavers quarterback Sean Mannion was benched in favor of Cody Vaz after throwing four interceptions. The Beavers fell four spots to 11th in this week's BCS rankings. Addicted To Quack also chimed in on the Beavers' descent while taking a shot at their intra-state rival.

Losing to Washington carries at least a four-spot bonus penalty in my book.

The Beavers head home to face the Arizona State Sun Devils this weekend.
