Week 4 of the college football season is officially here and FanSided has it’s newest polls up. Of course this poll is in no way official but it should be noted that it is a fairly accurate representation of both the AP and Coaches Polls.
The Pac-12 breaks down with 5 teams in the rankings (just like both national polls), including 4 that the Cougs will face at some point this season. Stanford (#5) plays WSU in the “Seattle Game” on Sept. 28, Oregon (#2) three weeks later on Oct. 19, Arizona State (T. #20) on Halloween Oct. 31 and Washington (#17) to end the season on Nov. 29. Arizona, whom the Cougs play on Nov. 19, narrowly missed the 25th spot.
The Ducks and Tide are in a close battle for the number 1 spot here, as UO took 38% of the votes.
