The Colorado Buffaloes just have to keep winning and everything else with figure itself out. That’s how it was on Saturday as they shook off early struggles and dominated the second half en route to a 28-21 win over their Pac-12 South rivals Arizona State. With that win, the Buffs move up to 19th in the AP poll and 18th in the Coaches poll, respectively.

CU moved into the Top 25 last week after defeating UCLA 38-16. They debuted at 21st after a string of ranked teams lost during a tumultuous loss. The Buffs’ two-spot rise here also reflects some shake up in the rankings above them. This weekend saw losses from LSU (5), Oklahoma (7), Auburn (8), Kentucky (13), Stanford (14), Michigan State (20), Virginia Tech (24) and Oklahoma State (25).

With LSU, Oklahoma and Kentucky losing, Colorado is now just one of 11 undefeated teams left in college football, and one of 8 in a Power 5 conference. Now that South Florida (23) and Cincinnati (25) are now in the Top 25, each undefeated team is ranked in Week 7. Colorado is also the only undefeated team left in the Pac-12, but that was the case last week too.

The rest of the AP Top 25 goes as follows:

  1. Alabama Crimson Tide (6-0), win at Arkansas, 65-31
  2. Georgia Bulldogs (6-0), win over Vanderbilt, 41-13
  3. Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0) win over Indiana, 49-26
  4. Clemson Tigers (6-0) win at Wake Forest, 63-3
  5. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (6-0), win at #24 Virginia Tech, 45-23
