The Wildcats are still the highest-ranked Pac-12 team among the coaches, whereas they have been surpassed by Oregon among the writers.

Arizona only has one game this week, and it is at Gonzaga. The Bulldogs are ranked 12th and 13th after suffering a loss to Texas A&M this past week. It's going to be a huge game in Spokane, and one that still has a lot of national implications.
