College Football Rankings, Week 4: Arizona Moves Up 2 Spots In AP Poll

The Associated Press released its college football rankings Sunday morning and, to no one's surprise, the Arizona Wildcats were given a bit of a boost. Arizona is undefeated under Rich Rodriguez and, because of that, they continue to find themselves slowly moving up the polls.

The Wildcats were expected to defeat South Carolina State on Saturday and they did that with flying colors, allowing them to move up from 24 to 22 in the AP poll.

The only three teams ranked behind them were unranked last week, so their status is obviously a bit contentious, but they'll likely keep moving up if they're able to keep picking up victories.

South Carolina State Vs. Arizona 2012: Wildcats Dominate In 56-0 Win

So maybe this thing with Rich Rodriguez will work out after all. The head coach, in his first year with the No. 24 Arizona Wildcats, has them at a 3-0 after demolishing South Carolina State 56-0. In the past two games, Arizona has outscored their opponents 115 to 38.

Much of the success can be attributed to senior quarterback Matt Scott. Scott has proven to be a double-threat for the Wildcats by beating teams with his arm and his leg. In three quarters against SC State, Scott had 30 completions for 310 yards and three touchdowns. This was in addition to his nine rushes for 61 yards and one touchdown.

Scott wasn't the only one providing the offense. Daniel Jenkins ran for 76 yard on 12 carries followed on the stat sheet by Ka'Deem Carey with 13 rushes for 71 yards. Jenkins and Carey had one touchdown each.

Dan Buckner and Tyler Slavin were two of Scott's favorite targets in the game. Buckner had seven receptions for 92 yards and one touchdown. Slavin caught five balls for 70 yards and one touchdown.

Now comes the real test to see what the Wildcats are made of. Next weekend, they travel up to Oregon to face the No. 4 Ducks in their first Pac-12 game of the season.
