Oregon 4th in coaches' poll
By Ted Miller
The Pac-12 is out of the national title hunt, and it also lost two ranked teams over the weekend with losses by Arizona and Washington.
Oregon is No. 4 in the coaches' poll and No. 6 in the AP poll to lead the Pac-12. Both polls have Notre Dame, Alabama and Georgia as the top three. Alabama and Georgia will play in the SEC title game next weekend.
The AP poll ranks unbeaten but ineligible Ohio State fourth and Florida fifth. The coaches have Florida at No. 5, behind Oregon.
Stanford is eighth in the AP poll and ninth with the coaches. The Cardinal will play host to UCLA on Friday in the Pac-12 title game, with the winner playing the Big Ten champion -- Nebraska or Wisconsin -- in the Rose Bowl.
Oregon State is 16th and UCLA 17th in the AP poll. Their positions are reversed with the coaches.
