It's getting colder in the desert.
Neither the Arizona Wildcats nor the Arizona State Sun Devils received any votes in both the USA Today/Coaches Poll and the Associated Press Top 25.
After winning its first four games of the season, Arizona is 7-4 with losses in two of its last three games. The Wildcats were ranked in the preseason and received five votes in the AP poll last week but have steadily joined the rest of the struggling Pac-12 as the conference continues to lack the powerhouse teams it was known for during its Pac 10 heyday.
Arizona State started the season 1-4 and has one every other game since. The Sun Devils are just looking to stay competitive, let alone get into the rankings discussion. The Syracuse Orange, Ohio State Buckeyes and Kentucky Wildcats are 1-2-3 in both polls.
