Colorado’s football team is still unranked in the national polls, but the idle Buffaloes inched closer to the top 25 on Sunday.

In the Associated Press poll, the Buffs (3-0) were the first team among “others receiving votes,” placing 26th overall with 83 points. In the Amway Coaches’ Poll, the Buffs remained 29th, but increased their point total to 73.

Last week, the Buffs were 29th in both polls, with 49 points in the AP poll and 41 in the Coaches’ poll.

Stanford (4-0, 2-0 Pac-12) once again leads Pac-12 teams, remaining No. 7 both polls. Washington (3-1, 2-0) is at No. 11 in both polls. Oregon (3-1, 0-1) moved up one spot, to No. 19, in the AP poll despite its overtime loss to Stanford; the Ducks moved down one spot to No. 20 in the Coaches’ poll.

Idle California (3-0) moved into the Top 25, at No. 24 in the AP poll.
