USA Today/Coaches Poll, Week 10: Top 5 Stays The Same, Oregon Moves to No. 6

The Oregon Ducks used a big third quarter to pull away from the Washington State Cougars on Saturday, which in turn helped them move that much closer to the top 5 in this week's USA Today/Coches poll

Oregon jumped to No. 6 in the poll this week, gaining ground on their Pac-12 rivals Stanford. Speaking of Stanford, they remained No. 3 in the poll after sneaking past the Trojans in triple overtime, rounding out the top five with LSU and Alabama at No. 1 and 2 respectfully, followed by Oklahoma State and No. 4 and Boise State at No. 5. The Ducks wren't the only Pac-12 team making moves this week though as Arizona State moved up two spots to No. 18 this week, while Washington remained right outside the polls, receiving 38 votes. 

Clemson and Kansas State took the biggest hits this weeks after stunning losses for both schools, moving Clemson from No. 6 to No. 12, and Kansas State  from No. 12 to No. 19. On the other hand,  Georgia Tech and Texas used big Week 9 victories to move back into the top 25, while Texas Tech and Texas A&M fell out of the polls completely this week after tough losses to Iowa State and Missouri respectfully.
