Blogpoll 2012, Week 3: Arizona Wildcats Leap To No. 23

The Arizona Wildcats have made the top 25 in every significant poll, starting with the AP and Coaches Poll and ending with SB Nation's own blogpoll. Arizona leapt from off the list into the top 25 after a surprising upset of the Oklahoma St. Cowboys. It looks as if the reunification of Jeff Casteel and Rich Rodriguez is doing wonders for the new-look Wildcats.

Arizona is one of five Pac-12 teams in the blogpoll this week. USC and Oregon remain entrenched in the top five, trailing Alabama and LSU. Stanford was already present and accounted for in the top 25 last week, moving up a few spots. Joining Arizona in leaping into the polls is UCLA, who had a similarly excellent upset of Nebraska. The Pac-12 is looking mighty solid to start 2012.
