The Bruins dropped in both Top 25 polls today after losing to the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday.

Saturday’s loss to Arizona has resulted in UCLA slipping in both Top 25 Polls this week. The Bruins are now ranked 8th in the AP Top 25 Poll and 7th in the USA Today Coaches Top 25 Poll.

That has allowed Gonzaga, Kentucky and Baylor to all move up a spot in this week’s polls. Florida State and Arizona jumped UCLA in the AP Poll while North Carolina jumped the Bruins in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

Both polls now have three Pac-12 teams in their Top 10 as Arizona entered the USA Today Coaches Top 10 at #9. Oregon is ranked 10th in both polls.

The Pac-12 is now the only conference to have at least three teams in the Top 10 in either poll. The Big 12 and the ACC each have two teams in the Top 10 in both polls. Despite losing to Arizona, Southern Cal is still receiving votes in both polls and is the only other Pac-12 team receiving votes in either poll.
