After receiving a couple of votes in the preseason Coaches’ poll, it would not have been surprising if the Arizona Wildcats got a couple in the preseason AP Poll as well. But alas, they did not, as we found out Sunday morning when the poll was released. Arizona’s first opponent, BYU, also did not receive any votes, but Pac-12 opponents Stanford, Washington, USC and UCLA are all ranked, with Utah and Washington State also receiving votes. The Wildcats may not be ranked, but they’ll have plenty of opportunities to prove themselves
