College Football Rankings, Week 4: Stanford No. 11, USC No. 12 In Coaches Top 25

Just as in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll, the USC Trojans see their stock slip significantly in the USA Today Coaches' Poll following an upset loss to the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday as USC falls from No. 3 to No. 12.

Stanford lands one spot ahead of the Trojans at No. 11, moving up just five spots as opposed to the 12-spot bump they received in the AP Poll.

Not surprisingly, the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide and No. 2 LSU Tigers continue to lead the way in the Coaches' Poll as the Tide take in 54 of the available 59 first-place votes. The Tigers collect the last five.

SEC teams occupy four of the top ten slots. The Georgia Bulldogs land at No. 6 and the South Carolina Gamecocks are in at No. 8.

The Oregon Ducks are a solid No. 3 selection among the coaches, ahead of No. 4 Florida State and No. 5 Oklahoma.
