We may have a new number one in SB Nation FanPulse poll, but Oregon held strong at thirteen; They remain the highest ranked PAC-12 team.
Five other PAC-12 teams made the Top 25: #16 Washington, #17 Utah, #18 California, #23 USC, #25 Arizona State. The Golden Bears loss to Arizona State apparently bought them a lot of credit with the communities of SBN as they shot up seven spots from last week.
Washington State isn’t impressing anybody anymore and has been asked to leave the Top-25 which opened up a spot for Arizona State. Washington is steadily sneaking up on #13 Oregon, rising four spots due to their destruction of the Trojans, but after dominating BYE week the Ducks are in a good spot to improve their rank against a Garber-less Cal.
The bye week came at a perfect time as Mycah Pittman and Brenden Schooler appear to be set for their debut/return after preseason injuries. Jake Hanson’s injury against Montana also set the offense back, but rumor is that he should be good to go for Cal.
With so much returning talent, it’s easy to see why the Confidence Poll is on the uptick.
-And for funsies, the poll also asked who was most likely to get fired. Clay Helton’s seat is basically on fire-
Nobody knows more than Duck fans! That’s why we need members to join the ranks.

This data provides an easy way for ATQers and other communities to talk about rankings and sh*t-talk in general.
