This is the first year Amway has teamed up with USA today to release the weekly poll, taken of from members of the American Football Coaches Association.

UB's week three opponent,  Baylor is ranked number ten in the freshly release poll. The Bears open up their season against SMU and FCS division member Northwestern State.

The Bears return star Quarterback Bryce Petty who will work with receivers Antwan Goodley and Levi Norwood.

Florida State leads the poll with Alabama right behind them. The poll includes *NO* mid-majors, not even UCF. The Knights humiliated Baylor last year in last years Fiesta Bowl.

Buffalo's only win over a ranked team came in the 2008 when the Bulls downed the 12th ranked Ball State Cardinals in the Mid American Conference Championship.
