A month after falling out of the Associated Press poll, UCLA is back in the top-15.
The Bruins’ 44-30 win at Washington was arguably their most complete performance of the season, earning them a four-spot bump to No. 14 in the country. UCLA had jumped seven spots in the previous poll following their win against No. 17 Arizona.
With two games left at the Rose Bowl after the upcoming bye week, the Bruins have a decent chance at winning out against USC and Stanford. But even a 10-win regular-season might not be enough for the Pac-12 South title. UCLA needs Arizona State, ranked No. 7 after beating Notre Dame, to lose one of its last three conference games to inch ahead in the division.
Oregon is still the Pac-12’s highest-ranked team, moving up two spots to No. 3 after a 51-27 win at Utah. The Utes fell to No. 25.
