College Football Rankings, Week 8: Oregon Ducks No. 1 In USA Today Top 25

Although the Washington Huskies won in double overtime last night -- knocking off No. 24 Oregon State 35-34 -- none of the Washington teams are ranked in this week's USA Today Top 25 College football poll.

Without playing a game, the Oregon Ducks jumped to No. 1 in the Coaches' Poll after Ohio State fell to Wisconsin at Camp Randall yesterday. It's the first time in school history that the Ducks have held the top spot in Coaches' Poll. The Ducks are still 6-0 on the season and are now in the pole position for a trip to the BCS title game. They last played on October 9 at Washington State, winning 43-23. Oregon received 42 first place votes.

The Boise State Broncos moved up one spot to No. 2 in the USA Today Top 25, their highest ranking ever. The Broncos received 11 first place votes.

Oregon is joined in the top 25 by two Pac-10 teams. Stanford checks in at No. 14 and Arizona at No. 18.

Washington State lost to Arizona in Pullman 24-7 last night, moving the Wildcats up 2 spots from No. 20.
