Buffaloes come in at No. 21 in new AP Poll

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The coaches poll is stupid and did not rank the Buffaloes. Yet.

The new college basketball rankings are out and the Colorado Buffaloes have entered the AP Poll at No. 21. Kansas, whom Colorado beat on Saturday fell to No. 13. The Buffaloes take on No. 7 Oklahoma State in Las Vegas on December 21st. The 8-1 Baylor Bears check in at No. 14 and Colorado's Pac-12 conference mates Arizona and Oregon come in at No. 1 and No. 15 respectively.

The Coaches Poll did not share the media's enthusiasm over the Buffs win over the Jayhawks, choosing to leave the Buffaloes outside of the Top 25. Whatever, bros.

Colorado returns to action this Friday in Boulder against Elon.
