AP Poll, Week 8: Cardinal Remains Seventh After WSU Beat down

For the second straight week there was no change in the top 10 of the AP College Football Poll, including the Stanford Cardinal, who stayed put at seventh in the polls this week after their win over Washington State.

Heisman hopeful Andrew Luck and his Cardinal came into Pullman this Saturday, where the Cougars looked poised for a possible upset early. But the second half is Luck’s time to shine, leading Stanford to a 44-14 rout of WSU.

As for the rest of the Pac-12, Arizona State nearly found themselves out of the top 25 for the first time in a couple of weeks, and will look towards their meeting with the Colorado Buffaloes to get back on track next weekend. The Ducks, they remained in ninth in the rankings this week, as did the rest of the top 10; including Stanford at seventh. Washington moved into 22nd, marking their first time in the top 25 this season.

LSU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Boise State round out the top five, though the big news of the polls was Kansas State moving up to 12th, the highest they’ve been ranked since the preseason of 2004. Georgia (24) was also unranked last week, the first top 25 of the season for them as well.
