Four Pacific-12 Conference schools, including Washington State, cracked the Associated Press college football Top 25 preseason poll released Monday. A surprise at No. 24 given their routine dismissals in AP preseason polls, plus the fact they failed to make the first coaches-poll rankings two weeks ago, the Cougars are joined in AP's Top 25 by No. 4 USC, No. 8 Washington and No. 14 Stanford.
