College Football Rankings: Oklahoma No. 1 In Coaches Poll; ASU Climbs To 20

It was a fairly routine week of college football and the rankings from the AP and USA Today Coaches polls reflect that. The LSU Tigers should stay on top of the AP poll after beating Florida, 41-11. Alabama Crimson Tide rolled over Vanderbilt, 34-0, and should hang on to the second spot. In a disappointing rivalry game (for the fans), the Oklahoma Sooners detroyed Texas in the Red River Rivalry, 55-17. 

In the Pac-12, the Oregon Ducks beat the California Golden Bears 43-15 but lost star running back LaMichael James with a dislocated elbow. They held at No. 9 in the Coaches Poll. The Stanford Cardinals are ranked No. 5 after they easily handled Colorado, 48-7.

As we well know, the Arizona State Sun Devils were 24th in the Coaches Poll and 22nd in AP rankings coming into this week. After a very impressive thumping of the Utah Utes on the road they jumped to 20th. ASU travels to Oregon to face the Ducks next week in a game that will be visited by ESPN's College Game Day show.

The USA Today Coaches Poll has Oklahoma (1), LSU (2), Alabama (3), Wisconsin (4) and Stanford (5) with ASU rising from 24 to 20. Oregon stayed at the nine spot.
