Arizona's 59-38 defeat of previously ranked No. 18 Oklahoma State commanded national attention, evidenced in the Wildcats' No. 24 slotting in the new Associated Press poll.

UA earned 149 points, -- or, one-tenth of top ranked Alabama's total -- and is sandwiched between Tennessee and BYU. This marks the Wildcats' first time in either poll since November 2010. Three consecutive losses to Stanford, USC and Oregon bounced UA after the Wildcats spent most of the campaign ranked and peaked at No. 9.

Other Pac-12 programs appearing in this week's poll are No. 2 USC, No. 4 Oregon, No. 21 Stanford and No. 22 UCLA.
