Pac-12 has eight in latest AP Top 25, including three teams inside the Top 10
Pac-12 football is once again well-represented in the AP Top 25.
The latest poll, released Sunday, has eight Pac-12 teams in the rankings. It matches last week’s number, which set a new record for Pac-12 in a single week. It also includes three teams inside the Top 10
USC leads the way at No. 5. The Trojans (3-0) were idle in Week 3, but remained behind Texas and Florida State after both had uninspiring Week 3 wins. Washington (3-0) also held in the same spot from a week ago at No. 8 despite tearing apart Michigan State, 41-7, on the road.
Oregon (3-0) jumped three spots to enter the Top 10 for the first time this season after beating Hawaii 55-10. The Ducks sit at No. 10.
Utah (3-0) moved up to No. 11. Oregon State (No. 14), Washington State (No. 21), and UCLA (No. 22) all moved up as well.
Colorado dropped one spot to No. 19 after a 43-35 double-overtime win over Colorado State at home late Saturday night.
Week 4 action brings the start of Pac-12 play throughout the league. The slate features three ranked-on-ranked matchups. Utah will host UCLA, Oregon will host Colorado, and Washington State will host Oregon State.
