BOULDER - "The Rise" continues in Boulder.
On Sunday, the newest college football polls were released, and the University of Colorado continues to trend up.
The Buffs are currently ranked No. 16 in the latest AP poll, joining Pac-12 teams Washington (No. 4) and Utah (No. 13). This marks the team's highest ranking since 2002. CU also moved up to No. 15 in the Coaches Poll and No. 13 in the ESPN Power Rankings. Just last week, CU was ranked No. 15 in the first College Football Playoff Top 25.
Former Buff standout Jeremy Bloom expressed his excitement on Twitter, writing, "Colorado football #15 in the nation... highest since 2002!"
With Thursday's 20-10 victory over UCLA, Colorado is now 7-2 on the season and sits alone on top of the Pac-12 South division. CU hasn't held that record since opening the 2005 season 7-2 under head coach Gary Barnett. The Buffs will travel to face Arizona on Saturday, November 12. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. MST.
Colorado will conclude the regular season with Washington State and Utah at home.
