Last week, the Bears earned no votes in the Coaches Poll and 2 points in the AP Top 25 (#39). With yesterday’s big win over the Ole Miss Rebels, the California Golden Bears are sitting pretty at 3–0—was that enough to crack the Top 25?
No, no it wasn’t.
But the Bears are making progress! Cal earned 18 points in the Coaches Poll (tied with the Kentucky Wildcats for #33) and 19 points in the AP Top 25 (#32).
Our next opponent—the USC Trojans—are #5 in both polls (1348 points in the Coaches Poll and 1241 points in the AP Top 25). The Stanfurd Cardinal earned 11 points in the Coaches Poll (#36) and 16 points in the AP Top 25 (#33).
