College Football Rankings: Stanford, Oregon On Track For Pac-12 Showdown For BCS Standings Position

Stanford and Oregon look as good as they have all season in the Week 10 AP Poll and the Week 10 USA Today coaches poll. The Cardinal (No. 4 in both polls) survived No. 21 AP USC in Week 9 and didn't move in either poll, and Ducks (No. 7 in both polls) moved up with a loss by Clemson.

That means that both should be in the top seven or eight when this week's BCS standings drop later Sunday night, and that sort of positioning is a good omen for the Pac-12 when it comes to potentially getting two BCS bowl bids. No matter which team wins the Week 11 clash in Palo Alto, the loser shouldn't fall out of BCS contention, and could snag an at-large bid if the other school wins out and scores a victory in the inaugural Pac-12 Championship Game.

The Arizona State Sun Devils (No. 18 coaches/No. 20 AP) are the fourth Pac-12 team in the Week 10 polls, though Washington lurks in the also receiving votes sections.
