Colorado State is ranked No.25 in the USA Today Amway Coaches Poll and No.23 in the AP Top 25, both of which were released Sunday morning. The team had not been ranked in either poll since the week of Aug. 24, 2003 when CSU was No.23 in the preseason AP Poll.

The College Football Playoff rankings will be released in the evening on Tuesday. CSU topped Hawaii 49-22 over the weekend to improve to 9-1 overall and 5-1 in the Mountain West. After opening the season 1-1, the Rams have rattled off eight consecutive wins.
