College football rankings: Arizona earns more coaches, AP poll votes

And the Sagarin computers love the Arizona football team as well!

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Wildcats received six votes in the Amway Coaches Poll and four in the AP Poll after beating up on UNLV and heading into Week 2 action, where they will face the upstart UTSA Roadrunners. The six votes rank Rich Rodriguez's team at 42nd in the nation for the Coaches poll and 44th according to the AP poll, but the more surprising bit comes in the computer-generated Sagarin rankings.

Sagarin puts Arizona at 27th in the nation and not far behind 24th-ranked Arizona State.

So for those of you wondering why the Sun Devils are still ranked ahead of Arizona in my power rankings, just know that I think it's that close as well. As an aside, Arizona won't jump ASU in my power rankings or in any other human rankings until the Sun Devils lose to a team they shouldn't lose to -- or unless there's a strong case for teams to leapfrog them.
