Washington holds in latest AP Top 25 poll after win over USC
Washington remained at No. 5 in the latest AP Top 25, released Sunday. Washington did not receive any first-place votes as the top nine spots all remained unchanged from a week ago.
The Huskies went on the road to beat a previously-ranked USC team in Week 10, 52-42. USC dropped out of the ranking as a result, but it’s a victory that will no doubt serve Washington well. The Huskies are looking to make the College Football Playoff and have their first 9-0 start to a season since 2016.
And everyone knows what happened with that team.
UW is joined in the latest media poll by No. 6 Oregon, No. 12 Oregon State, No. 13 Utah, and No. 23 Arizona. UCLA and USC dropped out of the poll while Arizona made its debut after upsetting the Bruins.
The new College Football Playoff rankings will debut on Tuesday. UW is hoping it showed enough at the Coliseum to crack the top four. But if not, UW still has opportunities in the closing stretch to impress the selection committee. The Huskies will host Utah next Saturday.
