The newest AP top 25 college football poll is out, and the Pac-12 has some reason to celebrate.
Week one was filled with hand-wringing after the conference suffered a few upsets to Mountain West teams and Oregon let a potentially big victory slip away against Auburn. But these week has seen a small resurgence despite issues with some of its traditional powers.
Stanford, after starting the season ranked, is now 1-2 after getting dominated by UCF on Saturday. The USC Trojans had a brief stay at the bottom of the rankings last week, falling out after losing in overtime at BYU on Saturday. The Ducks fell one spot to 16th after their 35-3 win over Montana.
But Cal and Arizona State have squeaked in to the rankings after solid showings this week. That gives the Pac-12 six teams (Utah (10), Oregon (16), Washington State (19), Washington (22), Cal (23), Arizona State (24)) in the top 25. See the full rankings below:
6. Ohio State
7. Notre Dame
13. Penn State
17. Texas A&M
19. Washington State
20. Boise State
24. Arizona State
