This week's polls have been released. Here's how the Pac-12 fared, from the top of the polls to its bottom, and what it means.

(AP/Coaches)

6/5. Stanford

The Cardinal were off this past weekend as they rest up for Pac-12 play and figure out how to replace starting linebacker Shayne Skov, who was lost for the season. Stanford appears to ease into conference play with a home game against UCLA before Colorado comes into Palo Alto. Despite the bye, they actually leapfrogged Boise State in Coaches Poll, which is pretty interesting/bad voting on the coaches' part.

12/14. Oregon

Nothing like a late-night blow out vs. Arizona to bump the Ducks up in the polls (some losses to teams ahead of them helped too). LaMichael James' school-record breaking rushing performance will likely help Oregon get more positive attention nationally as well. They moved up four spots in the AP Poll and three in the Coaches'.

25/NR. Arizona State

Dennis Erickson's squad is back in the AP top 25 after dropping out briefly following their loss to Illinois. A thumping of USC to give the Sun Devils their first win over the Trojans since 1999 will tend to do that. The coaches are not as thrilled with their play as voters are, keeping them behind Houston and Ohio State in the "Others receiving votes" category. They'll play lowly Oregon State at home this week, so they should rise with another win and several teams in front of them losing.

Others receiving votes: Utah (12 points in the AP poll/11 Coaches), Washington (4 AP/3 Coaches), USC (2 AP)
