Buffaloes unranked in Preseason Coaches Top 25

Colorado didn’t receive any votes either.

The Colorado Buffaloes are not only being slept on by the national media, but also by the coaches of college football. The Amway Coaches preseason poll was released on Tuesday and your Buffs were unranked. No one even votes for them.

Here’s the official preseason Top 25:

1. Alabama (61 first-place votes)

2. Clemson (3)

3. Ohio State (1)

4. Georgia

5. Oklahoma

6. Washington

7. Wisconsin

8. Miami

9. Penn State

10. Auburn

11. Notre Dame

12. Michigan State

13. Stanford

14. Michigan

15. USC

16. TCU

17. Virginia Tech

18. Mississippi State

19. Florida State

20. West Virginia

21. Texas

22. Boise State

23. UCF

24. LSU

25. Oklahoma State

The most notable omission from these rankings, besides Colorado, is the absence of Utah. All jokes aside, they’re an experienced, well-coached team who should contend with USC for the Pac-12 South.

Washington (#6), Stanford (13) and USC (#15) were the only teams from the Pac-12 ranked. Oregon (105 votes), Utah (81), Washington State (7) and Arizona (2) also received votes. Most often the West Coast bias hurts Pac-12 teams, but whoever voted for Wazzu clearly hasn’t been following the team because they could be the second worst team in the conference.
