2012 College Football Rankings: Oregon stands pat at third

The Ducks held strong at third and Oregon State somehow rose a place despite losing.

William Mancebo

The Oregon Ducks stayed the Pac-12's highest rated team in SB Nation's latest BlogPoll, coming in third behind Notre Dame and Alabama.

Despite the 48-24 loss to Oregon, Oregon State actually rose one place in the Week 13 edition to No. 16. They sit barely above UCLA who dropped two spots down to 17 after their loss to Stanford over the weekend. Oregon State did end up in a lot of different places however, earning the fourth-highest standard deviation score at 3.44.

The Washington Huskies received just enough votes to be mentioned. Oddly enough, the voter who rated the Huskies at No. 22 must have run out of teams to put in and just piled in Pac-12 teams afterwards, with Arizona, Oregon State and UCLA closing out the vote.

Oregon maintained a slim lead over Georgia for the No. 3 spot, with Andy Hutchins deciding that Georgia's slightly easy schedule has hurt them in the eyes of the voters for a shot at first place.
