Following its third-straight win over a Top 25-ranked team, Arizona Football enters this week ranked No. 23 in the latest Associated Press poll.
The Wildcats are rolling! After winning its third-straight game (all against ranked opponents), Arizona Football has entered the Associated Press Top 25 poll.
Following its upset win over then-No. 20 UCLA on Saturday evening, the Wildcats made news on Sunday afternoon, making its first appearance in the AP Top 25 polls since 2017.
Checking in at No. 23 this week, the Wildcats are finally getting national recognition for their stellar play over the past several weeks!
As it stands, the Wildcats are currently 6-3 (4-2) on the year and are ranked for the first time since last checking in at No. 23 in 2017 when the Cats then dismantled Washington State in Tucson.
Continuing its solid season, Arizona Football has a daunting challenge ahead over the next several weeks as they look to close out 2023 with a bang!
Entering week 11 of the 2023 season, Arizona Football is just one of five ranked teams from the Pac-12, joining No. 5 Washington, No. 6 Oregon, No. 12 Oregon State, and No. 13 Utah. USC and UCLA have both dropped out of the Top 25.
With the recognition also comes big expectations, and with the target now squarely on the backs of the Wildcats, Arizona will have to continue to bring the focus and effort.
Arizona enters this week as double-digit favorites against the Colorado Buffaloes; however, this isn’t a game that the Cats cannot overlook. Colorado is a very capable team with several talented players, and they if they are not careful, they could lose this one. Plus, next week’s game will be on the road, a feat that is not easy by any means.
