Arizona football steady in college football Coaches Poll, hops ASU in AP

The Arizona Wildcats beat WSU to a pulp, but it didn't help them move up in the top-15 because of few upsets.

Arizona went into Pullman and knocked off Washington State 59-37 on Saturday, but a relatively quiet week in college football meant that wasn't enough to move them out of the No. 15 spot in the Amway Coaches Poll. Arizona remains 15th as it was last week, just behind Arizona State, which went into windy Seattle to pull away late from the offensively-inept and defensively fierce Huskies.

But in the Associated Press Poll, the Wildcats leapfrogged ASU to 14th. The Sun Devils were ahead of Arizona last week but it took Taylor Kelly return and a little elbow grease to get past Washington.

Oregon finds itself sixth in the Coaches Poll and benefitted from previous top-3 Ole Miss' loss to LSU, but that's about the only major change in the poll from last week.

Behind the Wildcats and Sun Devils, Utah moved to 18th after beating USC. The Trojans fell out of the top-25, while UCLA's slim win against Colorado moved it back into the Coaches Poll, which it was not in last week.
