Not much action in the polls for the Pac-12

NCAA Football: Colorado at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We had to wait an extra day so that Georgia and South Carolina could play their game on Sunday but now the latest AP and Coaches polls are out and While Washington is holding steady and Utah is still hanging in there Colorado and Stanford have both dropped from the rankings following their losses on Saturday. Despite a prior thrashing from USC, Arizona State crept back into the coaches poll following their 3-point victory over UCLA.

rankings used here

The Associated Press Top 25: The longest-running and best-respected human poll. Didn't have any official bearing on the latter years of the BCS, and doesn't have any official bearing on the Playoff. Most outlets (including SB Nation) will use the AP's rankings as the standard until the committee takes over in November, though. Usually comes out on Sundays about 2 p.m. ET.

The USA Today Coaches Poll: Formerly part of the BCS, and now just a poll. It tends to react more cautiously than the AP's. Though polling athletic departments in order to rank other athletic departments is dubious, we still want multiple human polls in here, and this is the other big one. Releases early Sunday afternoons.
