For the first time in program history, the Buffalo Bulls are ranked in the top 25 of the college basketball AP Poll. The Bulls checked in at No. 25 on Monday following a 2-0 start to the season that included an overtime win over then No. 13 West Virginia in Morgantown.
The Bulls came into to the season already on the radar of AP Poll voters. Buffalo received 14 points in the preseason poll, and even got some love in the preseason coaches poll as well. The Bulls’ top 25 status is going to be put to the test immediately as they go on the road to face a solid Southern Illinois team on Monday night.
Elsewhere in the poll, Gonzaga and Nevada each held onto their top 10 spots. Gonzaga remained at No. 3, while Nevada moved up a spot to No. 6.
The following schools also received votes: Loyola Chicago (3), Marshall (2), Penn (1), Furman (1), Davidson (1), Southern Illinois (1)
