The poll, which is normally released on Sundays, was published a day later than usual in order to allow voters to factor in the result of the Georgia-South Carolina game played Sunday because of Hurricane Matthew.
The Maroon and Gold entered Week 6 unranked in the official poll, however registered four votes to be included, making them the de facto No. 39-ranked team in the country.
The Sun Devils have risen 12 spots to No. 27 after receiving 53 votes in this week’s poll.
As for the AP Poll, Arizona State’s season-high ranking was No. 26, when the program earned 135 votes—the most of any team not included in the top 25—during the Week 5 (Sept. 25) poll.
The Sun Devils have yet to be included in a batch of AP rankings since the 2015 preseason edition in which they were polled as the No. 15 team in the nation—over a full-calendar year ago.
The Sun Devils are, however, ranked No. 24 in the nation in this week’s USA Today Amway Coaches Poll.
