The Arizona State Sun Devils have moved up the rankings for a second consecutive week.

ASU came in at No. 18 in Sunday’s edition of the AP poll, jumping two spots from the previous week.

The Sun Devils (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) were on a bye week and return to action Saturday afternoon at home against Washington State.

Arizona also got some love in the poll after its big win over Colorado, receiving 11 votes.

The Wildcats (4-1, 2-0) are the Pac-12 South’s lone undefeated team and one of just two in the conference (Oregon).

The Ducks were the Pac-12’s highest-ranked team at No. 13. Utah was the other conference team ranked, coming it at No. 15.

Washington fell out of the rankings after its loss Saturday to Stanford. California and USC were the other Pac-12 teams to receive votes.

Alabama remained No. 1 in the poll, trailed by defending national champion Clemson.

Georgia and Ohio State tied for No. 3, which allowed Minnesota to enter the rankings as a rare No. 26-rated team.
