Huskies Slip In AP (20th) and USA (25th) Polls

Following their 45-24 loss to the Oregon Ducks Saturday, the Washington Huskies slipped four notches, from 16th to 20th, in the latest Associated Press college football poll released Sunday. The Huskies (4-2, 1-2) have been ranked in the Top 25 for five weeks. In the USA Today/Coaches poll, Washington fell from 19th to 25th.

Oregon remained No. 2 in AP for the fifth consecutive week. UCLA climbed from 11th to ninth and Stanford fell to 13th after losing to Utah. UCLA, Washington and Stanford are the only Pac-12 teams among the top 25.

Washington received 309 points in The Associated Press poll and 137 in the USA Today/Coaches rankings.

The Huskies, outclassed by the No. 2 Ducks Saturday, play at Arizona State Saturday before returning to Husky Stadium Oct. 26 to face the Cal Bears.

    They’re fortunate they didn’t drop out of rankings in each poll. Don’t think they can afford to lose their next game if they want to stay ranked.
