UCLA falls to No. 14 in polls despite beating UW

Despite a 41-31 win over Washington, UCLA fell a spot to No. 14 in the latest Associated Press poll — switching spots with No. 13 Michigan State.

The Spartans moved up after a 41-28 win at Nebraska that clinched a share of the Big Ten Legends title.

The two teams also made the same switch in the USA Today coaches poll.

USC, still tied with the Bruins for second in the Pac-12 South, moved back into the AP poll to No. 23 after its 20-17 upset of Stanford. It was the Trojans’ first win over the now-No. 10 Cardinal since 2008.

    So let me get this straight… UCLA which plays in the 2nd rated conference and who incidentally beat Nebraska 41-21, drops a spot to a team that plays in one of the weakest conferences after beating Nebraska by a less impressive score (41-28). Did I get that right?
