After going dormant for the holidays, there are now a couple of weeks of college results on the books in warm weather areas. There's only been one result worthy of shaking up the last rankings of 2014, though, and it was Arizona's surprisingly dominant win at Santa Clara. The Wildcats won, 55-5, laying down a big marker in their first season as a D1A independent. The win bumps Arizona to No. 18 and drops the Broncos to 24th.
Western Washington, now 3-0 after wins over Oregon State, Western Oregon and Oregon, climbs to 23rd. The Vikings are looking for a resurgent year in the NCRC.
Falling out of the rankings tragically is Oklahoma. Some inner-club turmoil has seen a coaching change pull many players away from the team, and the Sooners that take the field this spring will likely be much different than those that went undefeated in the fall.
Cal Poly, Arizona State and Utah all have lopsided losses on the books this spring already, but they were all to Cal, BYU and St. Mary's, which is to be expected, so they don't topple. As conference play picks up on the west coast this weekend, expect more competitive matches.
One will be a battle between a team trying to stay ranked and one trying to get ranked this weekend, as San Diego State and Arizona State square off. Both baost wins over Grand Canyon University, but the Sun Devils won a little more convincingly, so they take Oklahoma's vacated spot.
