Arizona Wildcats Move Up to Sixth in Both Polls

After their 17 point victory over state rival Arizona State, the Arizona Wildcats moved up to sixth in both the Coaches and Associated Press Poll.

The Wildcats are joined by only one other Pac-12 school in the rankings, Oregon, who comes in at 16 (AP) and 19 (Coaches).  At 16-1, Arizona takes on the Los Angeles schools this week, where they will see if their success against ASU can be built upon.

UCLA, who was ranked last week, dropped out after their loss to Oregon over the weekend.  UA and UCLA will play on Thursday at McKale in a White Out game which will be televised nationally on ESPN2.

The top five, though jumbled in both polls, still have the same five teams. Those consist of: Duke (1 AP,1 Coaches), Michigan (2,3), Kansas (3,2), Syracuse (3,4), Louisville (5,5).
