NEW YORK — Oregon moved up to No. 3 in both the AP and USA Today polls Sunday. USC fell to 13 in the AP poll after losing to Stanford, which moved up to No. 9
Alabama and LSU are holding down Nos. 1 and 2 the way they did most of last season.
The Crimson Tide is No. 1 for the third straight week, and it was almost unanimous. Alabama received 58 of 60 first-place votes. LSU got the other two.
The Southeastern Conference rivals were ranked first and second for eight weeks during last season before eventually meeting in the BCS title game. The difference last year was LSU was first and Alabama second — until the Tide won the national championship game.
UCLA was ranked 19th in the AP poll and Arizona 22.
