The Arizona Wildcats moved up from 21st to 19th in the latest AP Poll after blowing out Northern Arizona and Illinois in the first week of the season.

They are one of four Pac-12 teams inside the Top 25. The others are the Oregon Ducks (14), Washington Huskies (20), and the Colorado Buffaloes (25), who make an appearance after beating the Arizona State Sun Devils in China.

ASU is the only Pac-12 team that has lost so far, so it has been a pretty strong start to the season for the Conference of Champions.

This is the first time the Pac-12 has had four teams ranked in the AP Top 25 since January 2017.

Here is what the rest of the poll looks like:

  1. Kentucky Wildcats
  2. Duke Blue Devils
  3. Michigan State Spartans
  4. Louisville Cardinals
  5. Kansas Jayhawks
  6. North Carolina Tar Heels
  7. Maryland Terrapins
  8. Gonzaga Bulldogs
  9. Virginia Cavaliers
  10. Villanova Wildcats
  11. Texas Tech Red Raiders
  12. Seton Hall Pirates
  13. Memphis Tigers
  14. Oregon Ducks
  15. Florida Gators

  18. Saint Mary’s Gaels
  19. Arizona Wildcats
  20. Washington Huskies
