After bending to the very last inch against Ole Miss this weekend, Cal football was rewarded Sunday morning with big news. The Bears were the biggest mover in the AP Top 25 poll this week, jumping eight spots to the No. 15 slot, their highest ranking since 2009.

That mark puts the Bears as the second highest-ranked Pac-12 program heading into week five, just two notches below Oregon at No. 13, which Cal will visit on Oct. 5. The Bears will play host to Arizona State on Friday evening, which was dropped out of the AP Top 25 after a loss to Colorado on Saturday.

No. 17 Washington, No. 19 Utah and No. 21 USC round out the five Pac-12 teams in this week’s poll. The Trojans and Huskies will battle it out this Saturday in Seattle in a key matchup with both North and South division implications.

Having already defeated the Huskies two weeks ago, Cal visits Utah on Oct. 26 and will host USC on Nov. 16 for senior day.

The Bears earned a No. 16 ranking in the Coaches Poll, also released on Sunday morning.
