After WSU football took down Stanford University on Saturday, the Cougars enjoyed another rise in the Associated Press top-25 rankings, moving to No. 10 after defeating the then-No. 24 Cardinal.

The Cougars were ranked No. 14 last week, their first time being the top-ranked team in the Pac-12 Conference since 2002 when it was the Pac-10 Conference. Once again, WSU is on top this week as the next closest Pac-12 team is No. 16 University of Utah, which the Cougars beat 28-24 on Sept. 29. WSU and Utah are the only Pac-12 teams ranked in the AP poll this week.

WSU hasn’t been ranked in the top 10 since last season when they went into a matchup with University of California, Berkeley, ranked No. 8.

With the addition of losses from two top-10 teams, University of Texas and University of Florida, WSU was able to move up four spots in the rankings.

However, the Cougars have another important upcoming test Tuesday evening when the first College Football Playoff rankings are released. The CFP rankings decide which four Division I college football teams make the playoff and which bowl games they play in.

The CFP rankings are different than the AP rankings, so there is a possibility WSU could be ranked higher or lower than No. 10.
