Arizona has surfaced in the AP poll and will be looking to improve upon its No. 24 ranking with a home game against No. 9 Iowa this weekend.

This past weekend’s matchup between Arizona State and Northern Arizona was too close for comfort for the Sun Devils.

With a smacking of Colorado, California popped up in the USA Today coaches’ poll at 24th in the nation.

It appears that UCLA quarterback Kevin Prince’s most recent performance was clearly not good enough for head coach Rick Neuheisel.

Oregon has looked very impressive through its first two games, especially in the second half between the Ducks and Tennessee on Saturday.

After dropping from the AP Top 25 with its loss to TCU, Oregon State has found a way back in despite not playing this weekend.

Southern California barely hung on to beat Virginia last Saturday. This game truly speaks volumes about one of the programs; the rest of the season will help us decide which one, though. (My note: What a picture by the LA Times!)

Not only did Stanford defeat UCLA handily late Saturday night, but the Cardinal may also have very well ended any hope of Bruin quarterback Kevin Prince’s future at the position.

One writer notes that he believes Washington can upset Nebraska this weekend.

When you consider the lack of success Washington State has seen the past few years, their rallying to beat Montana State on Saturday is impressive.
