UCLA Football Moves Up to No. 12 in AP Poll Despite Bye Week


After beating the stuffing out of the bye week, UCLA football moved up one spot in the AP poll to No. 12, moving past South Carolina, who moves down to No. 13.

Here’s the full poll:

1 Alabama (55) 4-0 1495
2 Oregon (5) 4-0 1422
3 Clemson 4-0 1354
4 Ohio State 5-0 1305
5 Stanford 4-0 1280
6 Georgia 3-1 1171
7 Louisville 4-0 1091
8 Florida State 4-0 1069
9 Texas A&M 4-1 1012
10 LSU 4-1 979
11 Oklahoma 4-0 838
12 UCLA 3-0 834
13 South Carolina 3-1 812
14 Miami (FL) 4-0 753
15 Washington 4-0 665
16 Northwestern 4-0 550
17 Baylor 3-0 536
18 Florida 3-1 481
19 Michigan 4-0 471
20 Texas Tech 4-0 264
21 Oklahoma State 3-1 230
22 Arizona State 3-1 192
23 Fresno State 4-0 187
24 Ole Miss 3-1 132
25 Maryland 4-0 119
The Bruins are the third-highest ranked Pac-12 team behind Oregon (who sits at No. 2) and Stanford (who stays put at No. 5). With no major losses coming from ranked teams, the poll stood pretty still.
Washington joined the top-15, making that four Pac-12 squads who’ve made that cut. After dismantling Arizona on a rainy day at Husky Stadium, Washington appears poised to challenge Oregon and Stanford in the Pac-12 North.
Arizona State rounded out the Pac-12′s representation in the Top 25, as they sit at No. 22 after trouncing USC and lighting up an elite Trojan defense for 62 points. They had entered the poll two weeks prior but fell out after losing to Stanford in Palo Alto.
Oregon is the only Pac-12 school to have received first-place votes, primarily due to Alabama’s lackluster performance against the Ole Miss Rebels. The Ducks tore apart California, 55-16, in Autzen Stadium.
