Arizona may not have had a game this weekend, but it did not matter in terms of ranking.
Due to teams like Florida, Wisconsin, and Stanford falling, Arizona moved up five spots to 9 in the AP poll and three spots to 11 in the coaches' poll.

In addition, Arizona is the second highest ranked Pac-10 team behind Oregon.
Of course, none of this matter if the Wildcats fail to beat Oregon State, but the ranking is certainly progress.
