The Cardinal has moved up

Up into a three-way tie with Oregon and UCLA for first place in the Pac-12 Conference.
Up to the #1 seed for the Pac-12 Tournament if they win their remaining six games against the Rocky Mountain schools, the Washington schools and Cal. Oregon will play UCLA in Eugene week after next, so one of them will drop to #2, at best, and Stanford holds the tie break.
Up to an RPI of 12 from last week's 20.
Up from #24 to #17 in the the AP top 25.
Up from 'not ranked' to #21 in the USA Today Coaches Poll
Up from 'no way' to a possible inclusion in the NCAA Selection Committee's top 16. There's a long way to go before that decision, but Stanford's chance to be among the Top 16 and host NCAA 1st and 2nd rounds has improved dramatically.
