No votes in the Coaches Poll.

Cal is still getting votes in the AP Poll. Four to be precise. The Bears have dropped into a tie for 32nd with Appalachian State and Boise State.

Only three Pac-12 teams are ranked in the top 25: Stanford (a top 10 squad), Utah (a top 15 squad) and UCLA (just hovering over the top 25). USC is knocking on the top 25 and will probably return with a convincing win this week, so it's good that Cal's three losses are to top-25 caliber competition.

Washington State received a few votes in both polls, but the surprise is the 14 points for Oregon in the Coaches Poll (zero in the AP).
