The Colorado Buffaloes have continued their slow climb up the Top 25 rankings, coming in at No. 9 in both the AP and Coaches Polls. The only time the Buffaloes have moved down this season came after the loss to the USC Trojans after briefly entering the polls. Louisville getting blown out by Houston allowed the Buffs to move up into the No. 9 spot.
The Buffaloes took care of business in their first of two final home matchups against ranked opponents, knocking off Washington State 38-24. Next Saturday they will take on the Utah Utes with an opportunity to claim a Pac-12 South Division Championship.
The Washington Huskies moved up one spot in the AP and two in the Coaches based on the losses to Louisville and jumping Wisconsin. USC was one of the biggest gainers in the polls, who are starting to catch up to the Playoff Rankings, moving up to No. 12 in both. Also in the top 25's from the Pac-12 fresh off of losses are Utah at No. 21/20 and Washington State at No. 23.
