College Football Rankings: LSU, Alabama And Oklahoma Still Top Polls; ASU Falls

The USA Today Coaches poll is out for Week 8 and once again the best college football teams in the country took care of their business. (The AP rankings are again delayed this week but should be released soon.) LSU, Alabama and Oklahoma outscored their non-ranked opponents 137-31 proving once again how little parity there is in NCAA athletics. 

In a flurry of blowouts, the LSU Tigers beat the Tennessee Volunteers, 38-7. Alabama Crimson Tide defeated Mississippi Rebels, 52-7 and the Oklahoma Sooners handled the Kansas Jayhawks 47-17 to complete the top three domination. 

At home, the Arizona State Sun Devils were competitive for three quarters but let the game get out of hand in a typical flurry of Oregon Duck points. The Devils were ranked 18th going in and dropped to 25th in the coaches poll while the Ducks were No. 9 in the country and came out tied for eighth in USA Today.

No. 7 Stanford were a bit slow getting started but like most talented teams, they took over the second half and put away Washington State, 44-14. They remain fifth in the coaches poll.

The USA Today Coaches poll still puts Oklahoma on top with LSU (2) and Alabama (3) next. The rest of the top 10 are Wisconsin (4), Stanford (5), Oklahoma State (6), Boise State (7), Clemson (8t), Oregon (8t), Arkansas (10). ASU fell to 25th and Pac-12 brother, Washington appeared in the rankings at 24 thanks to their 5-1 record. We'll see how long that lasts once the Huskies face Stanford, Oregon and USC.

The AP Rankings will be added once they are released.
