AP Poll: Washington stands pat after easy win at Oregon State

In the latest  Associated Press poll released Sunday, the Washington Huskies stayed where they were at No. 6, after its 42-7  victory over Oregon State in Corvallis. The Huskies received 1,218votes and have been ranked in the AP top 10 for 21 consecutive weeks dating back to Week 2 of 2016.

The Georgia Bulldogs, by virtue of their 41-0 shutout of Tennessee jumped the Huskies to No. 5.

Washington is ranked No. 6  in the Week 5   Amway Coaches Poll.

Washington is now the highest ranked Pac-12 team after previous No. 5 USC’s 30-27 loss to Washington State.

Other ranked Pac-12 teams in the AP Poll include  No. 11 Washington State, which moved up five spots, No. 14 USC and No. 20 Utah, which had a bye in Week 5.

Week 5 saw the Huskies beat up on Oregon State, the worst team in the Pac-12 this season. Washington struggled early, holding only a 7-0 lead at halftime, but pulled away with a 35-point second-half explosion.

Dante Pettis starred for the Huskies Saturday, catching 12 passes for 105 yards and 3 second-half touchdowns from Jake Browning.

Myles Gaskin rushed for 115 yards and 1 TD as well.

Next week Washington hosts California in Seattle before traveling to Tempe to take on a feisty Arizona State team.

Washington’s next true test should come in a three game stretch starting Oct. 28, in which the Huskies will play at UCLA, host Oregon and then travel to Palo Alto to take on Stanford.
