AP college football poll came out Monday. I was sort of busy with the eclipse, so I didn't see the poll until yesterday.
The University of Washington Huskies are #8 in the pre-season poll. Last year they didn't even start out as ranked (i.e., in the top 25 of the poll).
However, they ended last year at #4 so they dropped a bit since then.
The only other Pac-12 teams that are ranked are USC (#4), Stanford (#14), and Washington State University(!) at #24.
The Huskies don't play USC in the regular season but do play Stanford and (of course) WSU. Most predict we'll meet USC in the Pac-12 championship game.
The football season starts September 1st when the Huskies take on Rutgers. Go Dawgs!
