Arizona falls, Oregon debuts, UCLA returns to top 25

If you believe the theory that a rising tide lifts all boats, then it’s a good day for Washington.

For the first time in weeks, the Pac-12 has three teams ranked in the Associated Press top 25.

Arizona got dinged a bit after suffering its first loss and fell to three spots to No. 7. Oregon debuts in the poll at No. 21 following last week’s win over the Wildcats. And UCLA, which has a nine-game winning streak, returns to the rankings at No. 23.

In the coaches’ ranking, Arizona is seventh and UCLA 25th.

Meanwhile Washington continues to leapfrog forward in the RPI index.

Two weeks ago the Huskies were 95th. Last week they were 73rd. Today the Huskies are 58th.

Here’s where the other Pac-12 teams rank: Arizona (2), Colorado (17), Oregon (26), UCLA (34), Arizona State (59), California (70), Stanford (75), USC (136), Utah (142),  Oregon State (148) and Washington State (189).

In addition to Washington, Arizona moved up two spots and Oregon improved 22 spots, while Colorado fell 11 spots.
