Colorado Stampedes Into National Poll
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The University of Colorado volleyball team is making its debut at No. 25 on the CSTV/AVCA Division I Coaches Poll. The poll was released today with the Buffs collecting 91 points, besting Tennessee by 10 points for the final position.
Colorado has been receiving votes in the poll for the last three weeks prior to being ranked. This is the first national ranking for CU since the Buffs were ranked 25th from Sept. 20 through Oct. 3 in 2004. It also marks the 104th time the Buffs have been ranked in the poll. CU was ranked eighth on Sept. 14, 1993 to earn its best ranking and has been ranked in the top-10 on seven occasions.
Colorado is currently 13-7 overall and is 9-6 in the Big 12. The Buffs are on a seven-match win streak, the longest since 1998 when CU won 10 straight contests. During the current streak, Colorado has defeated three ranked teams in then-20th-ranked Kansas State, then-24th-ranked Texas A&M and then-eighth-ranked Missouri. Overall, CU is 3-4 against ranked opponents this season.
