Sept. 25, 2005
This week, UCLA is ranked No. 20 on the Associated Press poll and tied for No. 20 on the USA Today/Coaches poll.
UCLA is ranked in the Top 25 in back-to-back weeks for the first time since November of 2001.
The last time the Bruins were ranked as high as No. 20 was Week 5 of the 2002 season, when they were ranked No. 20 by AP entering the Colorado game. The last time UCLA was ranked higher than No. 20 by AP was entering the 2001 Oregon game (No. 17).
When UCLA moved into the Top 25 on Sept. 18, it marked the first time since 2002, when it was No. 24 on the USA Today/Coaches poll and No. 25 on the AP poll (Nov. 18) entering USC week.
