Not long ago, it was the UW Huskies who were in the top 10 of the Associated Press college football poll and the WSU Cougars on the outside looking in.

A lot has changed in the last few weeks.

WSU rallies past Stanford 41-38 | Cal uses defense to stun UW

After a 41-38 comeback win over then-No. 24 Stanford, Washington State jumped from No. 14 to 10 in the AP poll Sunday. The Huskies, meanwhile, fell from 15th to all the way out of the poll following their 12-10 loss at unranked Cal on Saturday.

The Huskies were ranked seventh in the country just three weeks ago, but with three losses on the year, they now will have to fight their way back into the poll. They received 120 points in this week’s poll, 12 short of the No. 25 spot currently held by Texas A&M.

Now with back-to-back wins over ranked opponents, WSU is alone in first place in the Pac-12 North and even has a glimmer of hope of making its first-ever College Football Playoff.

With Oregon, Stanford and Washington all having fell out of the poll, WSU and No. 16 Utah are the only Pac-12 teams ranked this week.

Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame, the three 8-0 teams in the country, make up the top three in this week’s poll.
