Another victory, another jump in the College Football Playoff Rankings for the Colorado Buffaloes. After defeating the Washington State Cougars 38-24 the Buffaloes have moved up one spot to No. 9 in the playoff rankings. This Saturday they will take on the No. 22 Utah Utes in Boulder with a win sending them to the Pac-12 Championship game where they would either play the No. 5 Washington Huskies or the Cougars again.

With two weeks remaining in the college football season the Buffaloes can continue their Rise if they keep on winning. There are at least two guaranteed losses coming in the teams ranked above them with a lot more likely.
