    Think it was the year we went 5-3 with Kill and lost to Wisconsin @ Camp Randall with Cobb. 2014?

    I've seen people online say 2014... the last time I remember being ranked was going into the bowl game against Missouri.. we lost that game and dropped from the poll. not sure if that was the same year (2014)

    Default Gophers are #20 in the AP Poll!

    The four teams directly ahead of us, SMU, Michigan, Baylor and Arizona State all have difficult games next week, most on the road. If we take care of business at Rutgers we could be knocking on the door of the top 15.

    Michigan is at Penn State
    ASU is at Utah
    Baylor is at Oklahoma State
    SMU hosts Temple

    That won't happen. But IF (one game at a time) they win the next two, I could see it shaking up to a high of about #15. We were #17 when 2008 went downhill if I recall.

    The last time the Gophers were ranked this high was 11 years ago, 11/1/2008, #20 vs. Northwestern.

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, given recent history.
    But I would start thinking about trying to lock-in PJ.

    Per the U of MN:

    Minnesota Ranked No. 20 in AP Poll and Coaches Poll

    Minnesota entered the AP Top 25 today after a 34-7 home win against Nebraska. The Gophers are ranked No. 20 in the newly released AP Poll and are also ranked No. 20 in the Coaches Poll.

    This is the first time that Minnesota is ranked in the AP Poll since 2014 when it was ranked No. 22 on Nov. 23, 2014. It's the highest ranking for Minnesota since it was also slotted at No. 20 on Nov. 1, 2008.

    Minnesota was ranked No. 25 in the Coaches Poll last week and moved up five spots this week. The Gophers were previously ranked in the Coaches poll on Nov. 30, 2014 when they were No. 25.

    Dating back to last season, Minnesota has won eight straight games (Nebraska, Illinois, at Purdue, Georgia Southern, at Fresno State, South Dakota State, vs. Georgia Tech and at Wisconsin), which is tied for the fourth longest winning streak in the nation. Clemson has the longest winning streak at 21 games and is followed by Ohio State (12) and Appalachian State (11). Minnesota follows at eight wins and is tied with Baylor.

    The Gophers are one of 12 undefeated teams in college football are 6-0 for the first time since 2003. Minnesota is now 10-2 in its last 12 games and has won eight straight games. The last time Minnesota won eight straight games was 70 years ago, as the Gophers ended the 1948 season with four straight wins and started the 1949 season with four straight wins.

    The Gophers play at Rutgers on Saturday and then host Maryland on Oct. 26. Tickets are still available.

    It could go higher. The Gophers don't have any chances between now and PSU to get a big win, but there's also 3 weeks of attrition above us too. I guess we'll see if the pollsters let us keep rising by default.

    It could, but at some point the teams losing just won’t drop much if everyone starts going down or other teams will leapfrog us. We won’t get any popularity points beating Rutgers and not many beating Maryland.

    15-17 at 8 wins seems likely.
