At least Washington’s 31-28 loss at Stanford Saturday night didn’t put a serious dent in the Huskies’ poll standing. Ranked 15th a week ago, UW slipped only a notch to 16th in AP rankings released Sunday. In the USA Today/Coaches poll, Washington actually moved up one spot, from 20 to 19.
The Huskies, 4-1, received 536 votes in the AP poll and are one of four Pac-12 teams in the Top 25 along with No. 2 Oregon, No. 5 Stanford and No. 11 UCLA. Neither Oregon nor Stanford moved in the poll while the Bruins climbed from 12th.
Washington received 366 votes in the USA Today/Coaches poll, which also includes No. 2 Oregon, No. 5 Stanford and No. 13 UCLA.
Washington, ranked for the sixth consecutive week, takes on the Ducks Saturday at Husky Stadium.
