The Cardinal slid nine spots in the latest USA Today Coaches' Poll.

As was the case in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, the Stanford Cardinal see a deep decline in support after their Thursday night loss to the Washington Huskies, as the Cardinal fall from No. 9 to No. 18 in the latest polling of the nation's football coaches.

Falling behind the rising No. 17 Oregon State Beavers, the Cardinal go from the second-highest ranked Pac-12 team to the fourth, continuing to trail the No. 2 Oregon Ducks and falling behind the No. 12 USC Trojans. The Cardinal topped the Trojans in the season's first major upset a little more than two weeks ago, but the pollsters kept the Trojans ahead of the Cardinal.

The entire nation continues to trail the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide, which ended up 69 points ahead of No. 2 Oregon, with the No. 3 LSU Tigers and No. 4 Florida State Seminoles in tow. The entirety of the poll's top eight is unchanged from last week, with the No. 9 Texas Longhorns climbing up one spot.
