UCLA has moved into the top ten in the USA Today Coaches Poll and is just outside the top ten in the Associated Press Poll. Both polls were released this morning.
Kentucky is still #1 in both polls, which set up a showdown between the Wildcats and the Bruins on Saturday in Lexington.
Arizona is the second Pac-12 school in each poll, coming in at #16 in the AP poll and #15 in the Coaches poll. Oregon is the only other Pac-12 school in either poll at #23 in the AP Poll and #20 in the Coaches Poll.
Three other Pac-12 schools also received votes in each poll. They are Southern Cal, UC Berkeley, and Colorado.
Ohio State, which UCLA will play in December in Las Vegas, also received votes in both polls.
