The all-around destructive performance against Montana State catapulted the Cougars to No. 20 in AP’s week two poll. A 31-0 blowout Saturday night lifted WSU four spots above their previous ranking — the most of any team that was ranked in the previous week.

216 first place votes were enough to place the Cougars above Florida and South Florida. Three Pac-12 teams still rank higher than WSU, though. No. 6 USC, No. 7 Washington and No. 14 Stanford stayed in relatively the same spots from week one.

The entirety of the Pac-12 almost went undefeated in week one. Oregon State is the only team with a loss. However, every team has at least one win under their belt.

Boise State — the Coug’s next opponent — earned 22 first place votes. That amount is well under what was needed to crack the top-25.

The Broncos visit the Palouse for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff Saturday night at Martin Stadium.
