Daily Football Roundup 10-22

From the Bullpen

J Scott Russell

Midwestern State’s return this week to the AFCA top 25 poll at No. 25 is nice — and deserved — but at this point of the season it isn’t worth that much.

Both the AFCA and polls — which didn’t have the Mustangs ranked — are based more on where you start the season than how good you really are.

Buffs fall to No. 11 in poll

With one loss, West Texas A&M tumbled in the American Football Coaches Association poll and stands one spot further back than the Buffs started the season.

WT dropped to No. 11 from No. 4 after a 52-35 loss to Lone Star Conference rival Abilene Christian. The Buffs began the season ranked No. 10.

Loss made road bumpier, but Buffs remain in hunt

West Texas A&M has its work cut out now.

The Buffs fell out of love with voters ranking Division II teams after losing by 17 points to Abilene Christian. WT slipped from No. 4 to No. 11 in the national coaches poll but, more importantly, from No. 1 to No. 4 in the NCAA's Super Region Four rankings.

Unless two of the teams above the Buffs stumble, and that looks unlikely the next three games, the Buffs won't get a week off and will have to hit the road if they win a first-round game. WT is 0-2 in playoff games away from Canyon.

Of course, the Buffs still must earn a postseason berth. But they will do that.
