College Football Rankings, Week 13: USA Today Coaches Poll Has Oregon No. 1 Again

The USA Today Coaches Poll fell in line with the AP Poll again this week, ranking the Ducks No. 1 for the sixth week in a row. Oregon, idle this week, still sits in the driver’s seat on the road to the BCS National Championship Game. The Auburn Tigers, also idle, remained at No. 2 with a 57-point cushion over Boise State. TCU and Wisconsin rounded out the top 5.

Oklahoma State and Michigan State each moved up one place after Nebraska fell out of the top 10 with a loss. The Cowboys and Spartans sit at No. 9 and No. 10 respectively, well behind No. 8 Stanford.

Three Pac-10 teams were in the top 25 yet again this week. The Stanford Cardinal held onto the No. 8 spot, just four points behind No.7 Ohio State. The Arizona Wildcats moved up three spots to No. 20 this week, as well. No other Pac-10 teams received votes this week.

The USA Today Poll, one-third of the BCS rankings, gives us a pretty clear picture of how the BCS standings will play out this week. Barring a shocker, Oregon should remain at No. 1, with Auburn close on the Ducks’ heels at No. 2. The Ducks and Tigers control their own destiny in the race to the BCS National Championship Game.
