College Football Rankings, Week 1: Coaches Poll Has Oregon Lower, Stanford At No. 6

The Pac-12 absorbed a flesh wound this past weekend, and took a hit in the rankings as a result. Oregon is down, Stanford is up, and the conference isn't looking too hot in the polls.

The Oregon Ducks fell to the LSU Tigers on Saturday night, then fell again in the rankings on Tuesday morning. The Ducks and Tigers met at Cowboys Stadium in the marquee matchup of week 1, with LSU walking away as the victors, 40-27. As a result, LSU moved up one spot in the USA Today Coaches Poll, from No. 4 to No. 3, and Oregon moved down 11 spots, from No. 3 to No. 14.

The Pac-12 had a less than stellar week and received little love in the rankings as a result. Coming into the opening week of the season, two Pac-12 teams were ranked , with Oregon and Stanford both in the top-10. Stanford stayed at No. 6 this week, and Arizona State moved into the rankings, checking in at No. 23. USC is not eligible for the coaches poll.

If Washington fans are looking for good news after Saturday's tough win over FCS champion Eastern Washington, the Huskies did receive votes in the coaches poll. There weren't many, of course, but Washington picked up three votes this week.
