UCLA Football Gets No Respect After Arizona Win

Despite a convincing win last night, UCLA is still on the outside looking in in both Top 25 Polls.

UCLA finally put together a convincing win last night over the Arizona Wildcats, but it wasn't convincing enough.

Should it have been? Possibly, but the fact is that UCLA's offensive explosion occurred in the second half. So, a lot of the pollsters may have gone to bed before seeing the end of the game.

Washington's win over Stanford allowed the Huskies to move up to #5 in the AP Poll and #6 in the Coaches Poll.

It also dropped Stanford like a rock to #15 in both polls. Meanwhile, 4-1 Colorado entered the AP Poll at #21 and the Coaches Poll at #23. Utah slipped to #24 in both polls after losing to Cal on the road.

Outside of the Pac-12, Louisville slipped a few spots in both polls after losing a close game to Clemson.

Here are the complete polls.

At this point, UCLA is 27th in the AP Poll and 31st in the Coaches Poll. The team may re-enter the AP Poll if they can beat Arizona State and a few teams in the top 25 lose, but it's going to take longer for them to be ranked in the Coaches Poll.

Go Bruins.
