Don't normally get excited about college football, but my alma mater/former sportsbeat just moved a little closer to a national football title.

Cal Poly Football Achieves Highest Ranking in National Polls

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Cal Poly has achieved its highest ranking ever in Division I-AA football.

Cal Poly climbed three positions to No. 3 in the two NCAA Division I-AA polls following a bye week, due in large part to the fact the Nos. 1-, 2- and 4-ranked teams all lost last weekend.

Cal Poly was ranked as high as No. 5 in the 2004 polls, winning its first seven games before suffering back-to-back losses to UC Davis and Eastern Washington.

Prior to the 2004 season, Cal Poly¹s highest ranking was No. 14 after winning its first three games of the 2003 season. Cal Poly was ranked No. 16 in the final poll of the 1997 season, finishing 10-1.
