A strong win at home against Akron and a close win over Miami in Oxford was enough to move the Bulls up two spots in this weeks AP top 25 poll.
Buffalo also got help from the Big10 as Wisconsin and Maryland slipped up, creating the space needed for UB to move up from 21 to 19.
UB has two games this week. They wrap up play on senior night at home against Bowling Green, but before that they have to go to Athens to take on Ohio. The Bobcats have struggled a bit this season but at home they have taken down some of the stronger MAC teams, including Bowling Green.
If UB can sweep the week and enter the MAC conference tournament ranked they should be a lock for the NCAA even if they lose. More than that winning out the week and getting to the MAC Championship game would mean the Bulls would reach the 30 win plateau this season.
