The Oregon Ducks are stuck at the third spot and will probably be on the outside looking in the BCS National Championship race. Oregon romped Oregon State in the Civil War, but they don't seem to be going any further with the conclusion of their regular season.
The Stanford Cardinal rose up from 10th to 8th after a convincing win over UCLA in the latest result. The UCLA Bruins dropped from 15th to 17th after that loss.
Despite getting blown out by the Oregon Ducks in the Civil War, the Oregon State Beavers actually moved up a spot to the 16th position. So barring some drastic movement next week, only four Pac-12 teams will finish in the top 25 next week.
Teams that finished outside the periphery of the top 25 include the remaining four bowl teams. The USC Trojans finished 39th, the Arizona Wildcats ended up 40th, the Washington Huskies were right at 41st, and the Arizona St. Sun Devils finished 43rd.
