Oct 2, 2016, 11:24 AM
The statement made by the Washington Huskies in their dominant 44-6 win over Stanford on Friday was heard loud and clear by Associated Press voters.
The Huskies (5-0) are ranked fifth in the country in the latest AP Top 25 poll, a jump of five spots from last week and the program’s highest ranking since it ended the 2000 season at No. 3. They also rose three spots to No. 6 in the coaches’ poll.
The Pac-12 has a total of four teams in the top 25, including Colorado (4-1) at No. 21 and Utah (4-1) at No. 24.
Undefeated Alabama (5-0) remains No. 1, with Ohio State (4-0), Clemson (5-0) and Michigan (5-0) making the rest of the top four. You can see the entire poll here.
Washington will look to stay unbeaten, and end a 12-year losing streak against Oregon, when it heads to Eugene next Saturday.
