The Stanford Cardinal have risen to No. 8 in SB Nation's version of college football rankings, the BlogPoll Top 25. The Cardinal received lots of praise from bloggers, and were the only team outside of Alabama to garner a first-place vote.
With the upset of USC, the Cardinal also moved into the top 10 of the AP rankings.
There are four other Pac-12 teams in the BlogPoll Top 25. Oregon is the highest rated at No. 3. USC fell all the way to No. 16 after their loss to Stanford. UCLA moves up to No. 18 and the Arizona Wildcats sit in the No. 20 spot.
The Cardinal continue their conference schedule when they take on Pac-12 North foe, Washington, at CenturyLink Field in Seattle this weekend. The Huskies are 2-1 following a blowout victory over Portland State on Saturday.
