AP Top 25: UCLA dips in the latest media poll after Oregon loss
UCLA dropped in the AP Top 25, but not by much.
Following the Bruins’ first loss of the season — a 45-30 defeat at Oregon over the weekend — they dropped three spots to No. 12 in the latest media poll, released on Sunday.
UCLA is one of four Pac-12 teams in the top 15 of the poll, joined by No. 8 Oregon, No. 10 USC, and No. 14 Utah. The top six in the poll — Georgia, Ohio State, Tennessee, Michigan, Clemson, and Alabama (in order) — remained unchanged from the previous week.

UCLA stayed inside the top 10 on six different ballots this week. But the Bruins were also placed as low as No. 21 by one voter. Six others had them outside the top 15.
The Bruins (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12) will look to get back on track this week against Stanford (3-4, 1-4 Pac-12). They welcome the Cardinal to the Rose Bowl for a 7:30 p.m. PT kick on ESPN next weekend.
