LOUISVILLE, Ky. – After three road wins over the past week, the Colorado State Rams once again are receiving votes in the AVCA Coaches Top 25 poll. The poll was released by the AVCA on Monday afternoon.

CSU, which began the year at No. 25 and improved to No. 24 after a 3-0 start to the season, fell out of the polls in third week of the season. This is the first time the Rams have received votes in the poll since September 10th.

All-time, CSU has appeared in 238 of the AVCA’s 445 polls, 14th-most in the country.

Four of CSU’s 2012 opponents are currently ranked in the AVCA Coaches Top 25 poll, or are receiving votes. The UCLA Bruins are ranked No. 7 while BYU is ranked No. 16. Both Tennessee and Pepperdine are receiving votes as well.

The Rams are currently on a seven-match winning streak, which is the longest streak of the year. CSU will test that streak when they host the New Mexico Lobos on Friday. With a win over the Lobos, the Rams will be crowned Mountain West Champions heading into the NCAA tournament.

Prior to the match, CSU’s four seniors will be recognized for their contributions to the program.

Tickets for the match vs. New Mexico can be purchased online here, over the phone at 1-800-491-RAMS or in person at the McGraw Athletic Center
