    Rankings and Ratings




    Program Note CU at the Game has been a website for about seven years now. I have been waiting from the beginning to have a separate heading which tracks CU’s rankings in the national polls, as well as bowl projections and other ratings. While nothing is guaranteed a team with only four wins, it appears that the Buffs are poised to return to national relevance.

    This heading will be used to update you on how CU rates in the national picture, freeing up the “Colorado Daily” and “Pac-12 Notes” headings for even more stories about – and related to – your Buffs.

    ESPN national power rankings … Buffs join the list for the first time

    From ESPN … Here’s how things shook out in ESPN’s Power Rankings for this week.

    5. Washington

    13. Stanford

    18. Colorado Buffaloes (4-1)

    Trending:[​IMG]

    Week 4 ranking: NR
    Week 5 result: defeated Oregon State 47-6

    Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre might be an early candidate for coach of the year honors given the way the Buffaloes have started the season. They cruised 47-6 over Oregon State and have more than one Pac-12 win for the first time since 2011. Next they play USC, a team they have never beaten.

    24. UCLA

    25. Utah





    ESPN Bowl Projections … Buffs San Diego bound

    From ESPN … Washington is the top Dawg. The Huskies are the Pac-12’s only remaining unbeaten team, and they certainly look like the league’s most complete squad at this point. Friday’s 44-6 dismantling of defending champion Stanford — the Cardinal’s worst loss since Jim Harbaugh’s first season there in 2007 — makes Washington the Pac-12’s legitimate contender for the College Football Playoff.

    … As for the rest of the projections, Colorado continues to surge and is alone atop the Pac-12 South, USC moves up the pecking order but still has more to prove, and the Cougars are back in the picture. Arizona State suffered a blow at the hands of the Trojans, while Arizona fell out entirely. Here’s the full rundown:

    College Football Playoff semifinal at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl:Washington

    Rose Bowl Game Presented by Northwestern Mutual: Stanford

    Valero Alamo Bowl: UCLA

    Holiday Bowl: Colorado

    Foster Farms Bowl: Utah

    Hyundai Sun Bowl: USC

    Las Vegas Bowl: Arizona State

    Cactus Bowl: California

    At large: Washington State





    College Football News has CU at No. 19 nationally

    From College Football News … Based on looks, talent, and what’s happened so far, here we go with the Week 5. CollegeFootballNews.com Rankings 1 to 128.

    The Pac-12 …

    7. Washington

    13. Stanford

    19. Colorado (4-1)

    CFN Week 4 Rank: 28
    Final Score: Colorado 47, Oregon State 6
    Up Next: at USC

    If the world ended right at this very moment, Colorado would forever be the Pac-12 South champs – or at least at the top of the standings. That Michigan loss is more than okay, but if the Buffs really want to be taken seriously, they’ve got to get by USC next week on the road.

    21. UCLA

    22. USC

    24. Arizona State

    26. California

    33. Utah

    58. Arizona

    65. Washington State

    66. Oregon

    87. Oregon State

    (110. Colorado State)
