Stanford is up to No. 8 in the latest AP Poll Top 25.
Despite having the weekend off, the Stanford Cardinal climbed one spot in the latest Associated Press Top 25 Poll, moving from No. 9 to No. 8.
Stanford, like the rest of the country, continues to chase No. 1 Alabama, which received all but one of the poll's first-place votes. The Cardinal's Pac-12 rival Oregon Ducks climbed as well, boosting themselves past the LSU Tigers for the No. 2 spot on the strength of the Ducks' 49-0 victory over the Arizona Wildcats.
The Cardinal next hit the field against the Washington Huskies on Thursday, as Stanford looks to solidify its claim to a top-10 spot in the country. The Cardinal currently sit just 10 points ahead of the No. 9 West Virginia Mountaineers in the AP Poll.
