ASU on Verge of Re-Entering Top 25
The Pac-10 will most likely have four teams ranked in next week's Top 25. Washington, Washington State and UCLA are all firmly entrenched at 18 or higher. The fourth team will undoubtedly be the winner of ASU's game with Stanford.
The Sun Devils are knocking at the door as they are one place shy of being in both the AP and ESPN/USA Today polls. With Stanford ranked 25th by the writers and 23rd by the coaches, an ASU win would likely vault the Sun Devils back into the polls while the Cardinal fell out.
