The Arizona Wildcats gained some traction in the polls during their bye week.
Arizona (2-1) received one vote in the Amway Coaches Poll, making them tied with Hawaii as the No. 44 team in the country. Kevin Sumlin is one of 65 head coaches who submits a ballot, so maybe he voted for his own team.
In all, the Pac-12 was well-represented, with Oregon (13), Cal (16), Washington (17), Utah (19), and USC (25) all landing inside the Top 25.
Washington State, which collapsed in the second half in a 67-63 loss to UCLA, received the second-most votes among non-ranked teams (83). Colorado received 12 votes and Arizona State received six. So, the Pac-12 is proving to be pretty deep this year, though it lacks a College Football Playoff contender.
As far as the AP Poll, Oregon (13), Cal (15), Washington (17), Utah (19), and USC (21) were also represented in that, while Washington State, ASU and Colorado received votes.
Arizona opens Pac-12 play Saturday at home against the suddenly-upstart, but still just 1-3, UCLA Bruins.
