Ted Miller The coaches poll is out, and it makes clear the stakes will be huge when Oregon faces LSU in Cowboys Stadium on Sept. 3. The Ducks, who lost the national title game to Auburn last January, are ranked No. 3. And LSU is No. 4. Don't be surprised if the winner of that game leaps over No. 1 Oklahoma and No. 2 Alabama for the top spot in the poll. Stanford also received plenty of respect from the coaches, ranking sixth, but no other Pac-12 team was in the top 25. Arizona State just missed as the No. 1 team among the "others receiving votes," which translates to No. 26. The Sun Devils play No. 21 Missouri on Sept. 9, so they will have an early shot to move up. Utah is 28th and Arizona is 32nd. Oregon State and Washington also received votes. USC isn't eligible to receive votes in the coaches poll due to NCAA sanctions. The Trojans could be ranked in the AP poll. Six of the 59 coaches casting votes are from the Pac-12: Colorado's Jon Embree, Oregon State's Mike Riley, Stanford's David Shaw, California's Jeff Tedford, Utah's Kyle Whittingham and Washington State's Paul Wulff.
