Despite two upsets to top-10 ranked teams that produced a shakeup in the Associated Press top 25 poll, Washington remained idle at No. 12 for a third straight week.
Apparently, the pollsters were not overly impressed with the Huskies’ 44-23 romp over UCLA on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Washington State plummeted 10 spots to No. 25 in the AP rankings after a 58-37 defeat at Arizona.
Alabama, the preseason favorite, stayed at No. 1 for a 10th straight week followed by No. 2 Georgia. Both are 8-0.
