The Washington football team, unable to survive an overtime thriller at Oregon over the weekend, tumbled eight slots in the Associated Press poll—falling from 7th to 15th.

Oregon (5-1, 2-1), by beating the UW 30-27 at home, jumped from 17th to 12th, while the Pac-12’s Washington State (5-1, 2-1), idle for the week, entered the rankings for the first time at No. 25, giving the conference three teams in the poll—all from the Northwest.
