For the first time this season, UCLA is no longer ranked.
The Bruins entered Stanford this past Thursday at No. 18 in the Associated Press poll. A 56-35 loss to the Cardinal dropped them out of the top 25, leaving just three teams in the Pac-12 ranked. The Cardinal jumped five spots to No. 10, while Utah — whom UCLA visits on Nov. 21 — moved up to No. 3.
No. 20 Cal travels down to the Rose Bowl to play the Bruins on Thursday at 6 p.m.
UCLA also fell from 18th to unranked last October, following back-to-back losses to the Utes and Oregon. It moved back to 25th the following week after beating the Bears. The Bruins eventually ended the 2014 season at No. 10.
