No. 3 Washington, No. 4 Florida State and No. 5 Oregon all moved up a spot in The AP college football poll Sunday, giving the Pac-12 two top-five teams for the first time since the final ranking of the 2016 season.

The final Pac-12 version of the Civil War will play a role in which team plays No. 4 Washington in the Pac-12 championship game. Win and the Ducks are in. Lose and No. 16 Arizona beats Arizona State, the Wildcats head to Las Vegas.
Michael Penix Jr. threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, and No. 5 Washington remained undefeated and clinched a spot in the Pac-12 championship game with a 22-20 victory over No. 10 Oregon State
