College football rankings: Arizona Wildcats fall out of coaches and AP polls

Time for a bounce back

After being routed by the UCLA Bruins on Saturday night, the Arizona Wildcats have dropped out of the national polls for the time being, understandably.

Here's a look at how they look heading into week five.

AP Coaches S&P+
1 Ohio State (45) Ohio State (61) Alabama
2 Michigan State (5) Michigan State (2) Florida State
3 Ole Miss (10) TCU West Virginia
4 TCU Baylor LSU
5 Baylor Ole Miss (1) Ole Miss
6 Notre Dame Georgia Clemson
7 UCLA Notre Dame Ohio State
8 Georgia LSU Oklahoma
9 LSU Florida State USC
10 Utah (1) UCLA Michigan
11 Florida State Clemson Georgia
12 Clemson Utah Notre Dame
13 Alabama Alabama Stanford
14 Texas A&M Oklahoma UCLA
15 Oklahoma Texas A&M Michigan State
16 Northwestern USC Wisconsin
17 USC Northwestern TCU
18 Stanford Wisconsin Baylor
19 Wisconsin Oklahoma State Duke
20 Oklahoma State Stanford Minnesota
21 Mississipi State West Virginia Florida
22 Michigan Mississippi State Penn State
23 West Virginia Florida Tennessee
24 Cal Cal (tie) Miami
25 Florida Oregon (tie) Texas A&M

Oregon fell out of the AP Poll, and shoutout to John Adams for voting Utah No. 1 in the nation. And, you can't even really question it. How Utah doesn't even sniff Michigan State after what the Utes did to Oregon compared what to the Spartans did to them is mind-blowing.

Arizona is technically 27th in the coaches poll and 28th in the AP poll. Ryan Finley, who I know was at the game because I saw him and talked to him, put the Wildcats 17th, and needs to reconsider so many things. That 17th is the highest Arizona was on any ballot.

I think the Wildcats fell to exactly where I thought they would. Just outside the Top 25 with a chance to redeem themselves in Stanford this week. Until then, they can deal with not having a number in front of their name.
