Week 6 AP poll: UCLA football breaks into top 25 after upset win

The national media has jumped on the Bruin bandwagon.

UCLA football (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12) scored 510 points in Week 6 of the AP poll Sunday, ranking 18th in the country. The Bruins haven’t featured in the rankings all season – they only received four total votes in the first five polls of the year – but have now earned the national attention that comes with an undefeated start and an upset prime-time win.

While victories over Bowling Green, Alabama State, South Alabama and Colorado didn’t move the needle, a win over then-No. 15 Washington did. The Bruins took a 24-point lead in the second half and eventually won the Rose Bowl 40-32, giving them their first 5-0 start since 2015.
