LEXINGTON, Ky. — After a perfect 8-0 start to the season, the Colorado State Rams are back in the AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25 poll, ranked No. 22 in this week’s poll. It is CSU’s highest ranking since Sept. 26, 2011, when the Rams ranked No. 21.
All-time, just 14 teams have been ranked more frequently than CSU, which has been voted into the top-25 poll 236 times in its history. However, this is the first time CSU has been ranked since the second week of the 2012 season, when the Rams were No. 24 after starting at No. 25 in the 2012 preseason poll.CSU received votes several other weeks throughout the 2012 season, and has steadily climbed the rankings in 2012 — 38th in the preseason poll, 31st in Week 2 and 26th in Week 3 — before cracking the rankings.
Playing as a ranked team, CSU is 409-125 all-time, including 232-28 at Moby Arena. The Rams will look to improve on that mark this week with two critical matches. CSU begins Mountain West action against Border War rival Wyoming (Wednesday at 7 p.m. MT), followed by an Orange Out match vs. the SEC West favorites, Texas A&M. The Aggies defeated then-No. 16 Florida State over the weekend, and currently are the top team in the ‘Receiving Votes’ category (26th). Pepperdine, which CSU defeated on Sept. 7 in Malibu, Calif., is again receiving votes. The Waves dropped out last week, but defeated then-No. 19 Kentucky over the weekend to earn 17 points (31st).
For the third straight week, the No. 1 team in the country has lost, as USC fell to then-No. 9 San Diego on Friday. Additionally, No. 2 Texas lost to Arizona State, allowing Penn State to move into the top spot. The top five is rounded out with San Diego, Washington, Florida and USC. The Rams are one of three teams in the poll who were not ranked last week (Arizona State, No. 18; and Ohio, 24). CSU earned 235 total points, 110 more than last week.
