The Bruins were idle this week, but that didn’t stop them from rising up a little bit more in the latest AP Top 25, released on Sunday.

With several top-10 teams ahead of UCLA losing on Saturday — including USC in a 43-42 thriller at Utah — the Bruins slid up to No. 9 in the latest media poll. It sets up a top-10 showdown next Saturday with Oregon in Eugene. The Ducks moved up to No. 10 in the poll.

ESPN’s College GameDay will be on hand for the Bruins’ Oct. 22 game against Oregon. Another win for UCLA would give the Bruins three top-15 victories on the season and could help it bump even further up the ranking. UCLA has its highest ranking in the AP Poll since peaking at No. 7 in 2015. They haven’t been any higher than No. 7 since peaking at No. 4 in late October of 2001.

UCLA (6-0, 3-0 Pac-12) has been lead by a resurgent defense and an uber-efficient Dorian Thompson-Robinson this season. Against Oregon on Saturday, the Bruins will be put to the test. They’ve been strong at the line of scrimmage on defense, but Oregon has allowed only one sack so far this year and has one of college football’s most efficient ground games.

It should be one of the best games of the season.
