AP Top 25: Washington re-enters media poll after Oregon State win
After taking down Oregon State on Friday night, Washington re-entered the latest media poll.
Washington enters Week 11 ranked No. 24 in the new AP Top 25, released Sunday. The Huskies beat Oregon State in what were brutal conditions inside Husky Stadium 24-21 to take the Beavers’ spot.
Oregon State sat at No. 24 in the previous iteration of the media poll, but now sits in the ‘receiving votes’ category.
UW is one of five Pac-12 teams ranked in the latest media poll. The win — which moved UW to 7-2 on the season and 4-2 in Pac-12 play — sets up a ranked showdown at Autzen Stadium next Saturday against Oregon.
The Ducks have won three straight in the series, but Washington would love nothing more than to end that streak and take away the Ducks’ College Football Playoff dreams with it.
Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. PT on FOX.
UW also isn’t completely out of the Pac-12 title mix. It’ll need a ton of help, but a win over the Ducks on Saturday would be a giant step toward that goal.
