STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford has climbed into the Top 5 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches' polls following a 37-10 victory at Arizona on Saturday night.
Oklahoma (2-0) continues to hold onto the top spot in both polls, followed by LSU (2-0), Alabama (3-0) and Boise State (2-0).
Stanford has been ranked in the AP poll for 18 straight weeks dating back to last season, marking the program's longest continuous run in the poll since 1991-93 (26 weeks). The Cardinal has also been ranked in the Top 10 for a school-record 10 consecutive weeks.
With Auburn dropping a 38-24 decision at Clemson, Stanford's 11-game winning streak is now the longest active winning streak in the country.
Stanford will resume action on Oct. 1, when it welcomes the UCLA Bruins to Stanford Stadium. The kickoff time is expected to be announced on Monday.
