    Rankings and Ratings

    October 9th

    Colorado remains ranked … for at least another day

    From the USA Today … The release of the Amway Coaches Poll will be delayed one day due to the impact of Hurricane Matthew on the weekend’s college football schedule. The poll will be released the afternoon of Monday, Oct. 10.

    South Carolina moved its home game against Georgia to Sunday prior to the storm making landfall in the state. Charlotte and Florida Atlantic also will play Sunday afternoon. Florida’s game against LSU was postponed.

    In order to allow the panel of coaches the ability to vote after all games are played, the usual Sunday deadline was pushed back one day.

    … The Associated Press poll will also be released on Monday …

    ESPN Pac-12 Power Index has CU at No. 4 in the conference

    From ESPN … Welcome to this week’s Pac-12 Power Rankings. You can see last week’s rankings here. If you don’t like where you’re ranked, play better.

    4. Colorado (4-2, 2-1; No. 2 last week)

    One conference loss — 21-17 to USC — isn’t going to bump the Buffs from contention. Especially in the getting-crazier-by-the-second Pac-12 South. The defense played well enough to win against the Trojans, and that should be encouraging. But failing to capitalize on four turnovers was the difference. Colorado can stay in the South hunt next week with Arizona State coming to town.

    CBS Bowl projections by Jerry Palm

    From CBS Sports … Not a surprise that CU is not on the list, as the Buffs were not on the list last week despite a 4-1 record. To add insult to injury, Jerry Palm is projecting that Colorado State will fill an empty spot vacated by the Pac-12, with the Pac-12 unable to fill its allotted bowl slots.

    Try not to take this too personally, though. Palm still has Stanford as the No. 2 team in the Pac-12, earning a Rose Bowl berth.

    The Pac-12 …

    — College Football Playoff – Washington v. Alabama

    — Rose Bowl – Michigan v. Stanford (Stanford?? The Cardinal has lost its last two games by a combined score of 86-26. Perhaps Mr. Palm should check the late scores before posting his projections)

    — Alamo Bowl – Baylor v. UCLA (UCLA?? At 3-3, 1-2, the Bruins are clearly the Pac-12’s No. 3 team)

    — Holiday Bowl – Penn State v. Utah

    — Foster Farms Bowl – Indiana v. USC

    — Sun Bowl – North Carolina v. Arizona State

    — Las Vegas Bowl – San Diego State v. Washington State

    — Cactus Bowl – Kansas State v. Colorado State (which would mean that, according to Jerry Palm, five Pac-12 teams – Colorado, Arizona, Cal, Oregon State and Oregon – will all fail to achieve six wins. Interesting that he sees the conference has having only seven bowl eligible teams … after the league had ten bowl teams in 2015).
