Buffaloes Come In at No. 27 in Coaches Poll

New, comments

The Buffs aren't ranked in the Top 25, but sit right on the fringes of the poll.

The USA Today Coaches Poll is out and, a bit disappointingly, the Buffaloes aren't ranked. They come in at #27 in the others receiving votes section. But they will have an opportunity to jump into the Top 25 very quickly when they take on #26 Baylor in the opening game of the season.

In fact, Colorado is going to have plenty of chances this year to prove how good they are with a schedule that has shaped up to be one of the best in the country.

Check it out. The Buffs take on:

#26 Baylor
#32 Harvard
#6 Kansas
#12 Oklahoma State
#46 Georgia
#23 UCLA
#5 Arizona
#44 Arizona State
#18 Oregon
#34 California

That is one hell of a schedule
