Entering the season, the Arizona Wildcats were ranked 22nd in both major polls.

Now after one week, the coaches moved them up a little bit, while the AP writers left them right where they were.

Here's a look at how the two polls shake out:

AP Coaches
1 Ohio State (61) Ohio State (63)
2 Alabama Alabama (1)
3 TCU TCU
4 Baylor Baylor
5 Michigan State Oregon
6 Auburn Michigan State
7 Oregon Auburn
8 USC Florida State
9 Notre Dame Georgia
10 Georgia USC
11 Florida State Notre Dame
12 Clemson Clemson
13 UCLA UCLA
14 LSU Ole Miss
15 Georgia Tech LSU
16 Texas A&M Georgia Tech
17 Ole Miss Oklahoma
18 Arkansas Arkansas
19 Oklahoma Texas A&M
20 Boise State Arizona
21 Missouri Missouri
22 Arizona Boise State
23 Tennessee Tennessee
24 Utah Wisconsin
25 Mississippi State Utah

According to College Poll Tracker, Arizona is ranked anywhere from 14th (Ken Medlin, WRAL in Raleigh, NC) to unranked by 12 writers. Arizona beat writer Daniel Berk has them 17th, and is the only writer to rank the Wildcats in that particular spot.

It's nice to see Utah jump up into the polls after their win over Michigan, while ASU's lackluster performance on Saturday drops them out of the Top 25. The Pac-12 now has five ranked teams in both polls, with Oregon, USC and UCLA all finding themselves in the top 13.

There are three games this week between ranked teams, including Oregon/Michigan State. Arizona's first ranked opponent is UCLA in three weeks.
