Will the Pac-12 fall out of the polls again?

Programming alert: Live chat at 2 p.m.
The last time the AP and USA Today/ESPN coaches top 25 poll didn’t include a Pac-10/12 team was Dec. 27, 2010.
It could happen again today.
Arizona (4-2), which was No. 23 in both polls last week, is certain to fall out of the rankings after losing 61-57 to San Diego State.
The only question is whether pollsters will knock out California (5-1), which was 18 in the coaches’ ranking and 20 with the writers. The Golden Bears were drilled 92-53 by Missouri in the most lopsided defeat in school history to a non-conference opponent.
Oregon State (5-1), Stanford (5-1) and Washington (4-1) are the other one-loss teams in the conference, but they’re not likely to receive enough votes to vault into the top 25.
Doug Haller, who covers Arizona State at the Arizona Republic, submitted his top 25 ballot without a Pac-12 team.
Gary Parrish and Jeff Goodman at CBSsports.com also authored a top 25 ballot that did not include a team from the conference.
It’s interesting to note, three Pac-12 football teams (Stanford, Oregon and USC) are among the top 10 in the AP poll.
