AP Poll: Sun Devils drop out of Top 25

Ronald Martinez

Apparently, it's hard to stay in the Top 25 when you lose a much-hyped, nationally-televised game. Whoda thunk?

Arizona State learned Sunday morning that it's difficult to stay in the AP's good graces when all eyeballs are on you the previous night and you falter.

After Saturday's 37-34 loss to Notre Dame, the associated press voters have dropped the Sun Devils from No. 22 to unranked in the latest poll. Arizona State only received three votes which technically puts them tied for No. 32 in the nation with Mississippi.

Notre Dame, who dropped out of the rankings last week by receiving just 12 votes, is now No. 27 in terms of votes (50 received).

Looking ahead, it might not be too long before Arizona State gets another opportunity to hop back into top 25 relevancy. While a win over Colorado next Saturday isn't going to turn any heads, a win over No. 16 Washington in two weeks certainly will earn ASU some added votes.

Around the rest of the Pac-12, there wasn't a ton of movement. Oregon remained at No. 2 with five first place votes. Stanford sat at No. 5 despite their scare with Washington. UCLA actually moved up one spot to No. 11 after Utah gave the Bruins a run for their money Thursday. And Washington only dropped one slot to No. 16 following their closely contested battle with the Cardinal.
