The Bruins, No. 11 a day ago, are no longer ranked, an unsurprising development given that they did blow an 18-point, second-half lead against Cal Poly and ending the new Pauley Pavilion winning streak at three. They still somehow held on to 85 AP votes as well as a No. 24 spot in the Coaches Poll — an indication that voters either aren’t watching games or are supremely confident in UCLA’s ability to turn things around.
The drop also appears to be the steepest fall out of the AP poll since Missouri fell from No. 9 in 2011 — but the Tigers slowly dipped out over the course of an entire season rather than a single week.
