SALT LAKE CITY β€” After a one-week break outside of the national rankings, BYU is back.

The Cougars are ranked No. 25 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll, which was released Sunday afternoon.

The Cougars had received votes in the previous week's poll but found a spot in the latest poll after a 21-19 win over Washington State in BYU's first-ever visit to Pullman, Washington.

The win over the red Cougars Saturday is BYU's fourth win over a Power Five program this season, which is the first time in program history, and is the fourth win over a Pac-12 team this season. BYU (6-2) previously beat Arizona, Arizona State and Utah before Saturday's win over Washington State.

The Cougars have one more game against a Pac-12 opponent, a Nov. 27 matchup against USC at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Although ranked in the AP Top 25, BYU was held out of the USA Today Coaches Poll but were receiving votes.

At the top of the rankings remains Georgia, which was on a bye week, as the unanimous favorite. Behind the Bulldogs this week is No. 2 Cincinnati, No. 3 Alabama, No. 4 Oklahoma and No. 5 Ohio State.

Oklahoma was previously ranked No. 3 last week but had to rally from a 10-0 deficit against Kansas in the first half to come away with a victory.
