Another week of losses, another week with no hope of sniffing the AP Top 25 College Football Poll for both the Washington Huskies and the Washington State University Cougars. This week, the Cougars did play a part in the very top of the poll, however.
The Oregon Ducks, by virtue of their 43-23 win over WSU in Pullman and Alabama's 35-21 loss at South Carolina, have jumped from the No. 3 spot to the No. 2 spot in the poll. The Ducks are now 6-0 on the season and looking like strong contenders to make the BCS Championship game.
The Pac-10 conference has four teams in the AP Top 25 this week, thanks to newcomers Oregon State. Besides Oregon, Stanford (5-1) checks in at No. 14, Arizona (4-1) sits at No. 17 and Oregon State (3-2) slides in at No. 24.
Washington lost to Arizona State, 24-14, at Husky Stadium and neither team is listed as receiving votes in the poll, much less in its Top 25.
