PAC-10 IN THE RANKINGS: Three Pac-10 teams continue to be ranked among the top 25 in both national polls. Stanford remains at No. 3 in the Associated Press ranking after making the move up last week, and is No. 4 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, while California dropped down to No. 12 and No. 7, respectively, after suffering losses to ranked opponents Oklahoma and TCU. Arizona State is holding steady at No. 21 winning four in a row over the last couple of weeks.

When the poll was released on Nov. 24, it was the first time two Pac-10 teams have been ranked in the top five in the same week since the final poll in 1989-90. That year, Stanford was No. 2 and Washington was No. 3. Cal also achieved a first in that Nov. 24 poll, appearing in the top five in the ranking for the first time ever.
