    [​IMG]While Sports Illustrated picked Oregon to win the Pac-12 -- over Utah in the first conference championship game -- it ranked the Ducks behind Stanford in its preseason top-25.

    SI tapped Stanford fourth and Oregon fifth in its top-25. It also has Arizona State 17th and USC 20th.

    Alabama is No. 1. Oregon's season-opening opponent, LSU, is No. 3.

    This actually isn't incongruous. The SI.com Pac-12 preview was done by highly respect Eugene Register-Guard columnist George "The Animal" Schroeder, while the top-25 is a magazine thing that operates independently.

    Pac-12 nonconference foes in the top-25 other than LSU include No. 9 Nebraska (Washington), No. 12 Wisconsin (Oregon State), No. 13 Oklahoma State (Arizona) No. 15 Notre Dame (USC, Stanford), No. 19 Ohio State (Colorado) and No. 22 Missouri (Arizona State).

    Does any other AQ conference play eight nonconference games versus top-25 foes?

    What do* you think?

    Here's SI's top-25.

    1. Alabama
    2. Oklahoma
    3. LSU
    4. Stanford
    5. Oregon
    6. Florida State
    7. South Carolina
    8. Boise State
    9. Nebraska
    10. Arkansas
    11. Texas A&M
    12. Wisconsin
    13. Oklahoma State
    14. Michigan State
    15. Notre Dame
    16. Virginia Tech
    17. Arizona State
    18. TCU
    19. Ohio State
    20. USC
    21. Mississippi State
    22. Missouri
    23. West Virginia
    24. Auburn
    25. Florida

    I'd tap Oregon over Stanford. Different strokes and all that, though.

    I can't believe you've had that kind of luck at the trannie bars.
