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.
This is Arizona's highest ranking since the 1999 preseason 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.
