UW Enters Playoff Rankings, WSU Stays

The second set of playoff rankings have just been unveiled and both the Cougars and the Huskies find themselves in the top 25.

WSU stays at 8 in the College Football Playoff rankings after a terrible turnout in Pullman against Cal. Cal, who beat WSU soundly in Berkley a year ago, continued to cause the Cougars problems. WSU was strongly favored to win. But it would be a late 4th quarter drive that would secure the victory for Washington State.

The Huskies came in full force building a comfortable 21 – 0 lead against Stanford in the first half. But it didn’t last long as the Huskies found themselves holding on for a win as Stanford clawed back to 17 – 24 with 9 minutes left in the 4th. The Huskies would be held to a field goal with 5:09 left in the game. Stanford would go on to score another touchdown, but it would not be enough as UW would finish 27 – 23. Huskies enter their bye week at 25 and the AP poll at 20.
