Washington is ranked No. 8 in the latest AP Top 25 poll, released Sunday.

The Huskies (3-0) are coming off of a 41-7 dismantling of Michigan State on the road. Curious, then, that they didn’t move at all in the latest media poll. UW sat at No. 8 in last week’s ranking as well.

In a showcase game of sorts against a future Big Ten foe, Washington dominated in every facet of the game. UW had a 35-0 lead going into the halftime break and never let the first-team Spartan offense find any sort of rhythm. The Husky rushing attack found its footing a bit, and the defense turned in a strong all-around game.

UW opens Pac-12 play at home this week against a Cal team that found itself trailing FCS Idaho 17-0 early in Week 3. The Golden Bears are coming to Husky Stadium for a 7:30 p.m. PT kick (ESPN) and could be without star tailback Jaydn Ott, who missed the Week 3 contest.

Washington is once again one of eight Pac-12 teams in the ranking this week. The Huskies are joined by No. 5 USC, No. 10 Oregon, No. 11 Utah, No. 14 Oregon State, No. 19 Colorado, No. 21 Washington State, and No. 22 UCLA.
