Pacific Takes Top 25 9/10: Stanford makes it into the Top 10

We update our Pac-12-focused Top 25.

NCAA Football: Southern California at Stanford Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports
  1. Alabama 2-0

2. Georgia 2-0

3. Clemson 2-0

4. Oklahoma 2-0

5. Ohio State 2-0

6. Wisconsin 2-0

7. Auburn 2-0

8. Penn State 2-0

9. Washington 1-1 - The Huskies looked a little sloppy in a 45-3 win over North Dakota, but that might have to do with the Huskies trying to catch their breath between playing Auburn and Utah. They have a lot to prove, but they can show they’re a Top 10/CFP contender by winning at Utah Saturday night.

10. Stanford 2-0 - Beating San Diego State and USC by a combined 35 points in the first two weeks was about as good as the Cardinal could realistic open. They look like they could actually be the best team in the Pac-12 right now.

11. LSU 2-0

12. Notre Dame 2-0

13. West Virginia 2-0

14. TCU 2-0

15. Virginia Tech 2-0

16. Boise State 2-0

17. UCF 2-0

18. Mississippi State 2-0

19. Michigan 1-1

20. Oregon 2-0 - The Ducks continue with their warm up until they get Stanford in two weeks in Eugene. Basically getting three practice games against a really bad FCS team and teams that wouldn’t be Top 25 FCS teams could really help keep them fresh for their showdown with the Cardinal.

21. Utah 2-0 - The Utes pulled out an ugly one at Northern Illinois and come into their showdown with Washington undefeated. Their offense is going to have to do more against the Washington Huskies than they did the Northern Illinois Huskies if they hope to get a win that can put them on the national map Saturday night.

22. Miami 1-1

23. Oklahoma State 2-0

24. Arizona State 2-0 - The Sun Devils have come out fighting under Herm Edwards and scored one of the best wins of the early college football season, upsetting Michigan State in Tempe. They’ve earned a Top 25 spot for now, but will have to defend it at San Diego State Saturday.

25. Maryland 2-0
