9th: Oregon Ducks — Oregon again finishes as the top Pac-12 team thanks to a dominant win over Texas. They finish ahead of Stanford with a record of 11-2, although Ducks fans probably weren’t as happy as they would like to be about their season.

11th: Stanford Cardinal
— Stanford falls a pretty drastic six spots for losing by a few points to Michigan State. A pretty significant overreaction there by the voters, but I’m sure Stanford will be happy with their Pac-12 title.

16th: UCLA Bruins
— UCLA moves up a spot for their thrashing of Virginia Tech, and along with Oregon and Stanford figure to be the top contenders for the Pac-12 crown next year.

19th: USC Trojans — USC stormed their way up for seven spots after one of the most impressive wins of the bowl season. There could be some high expectations for Steve Sarkisian in a few years.

21st: Arizona St. Sun Devils — ASU’s disappointing performance against Texas Tech was one of the biggest blemishes on the Pac-12 postseason calendar. They dropped several spots.  It’s the first time ASU has been ranked since 2007.

25th: Washington Huskies — Washington’s dominating performance over BYU helped the Huskies finish in the top 25 for the first time since 2001.
