Is #4 the highest ranked team we’ve played since the Tark UNLV teams? Can’t remember what Gonzaga was ranked when we played them.

I think it probably is. The only other I can think of is the Utes in the late ‘90s, but I doubt they were ranked that high early in the year.

A less fun fact is that we can’t have nice things. :) You guys are jinxing the crap out of the small chance we actually have to win this.

they win, they get in the ncaa tournament. It's as simple as that.

lets be real here, if a team is capable of beating the #1 team in the country on a 22 game undefeated winning streak @ their home floor, rest assure they are definitely good e nough to get an at large bid. Not all Q1 wins are made equal. Add that and two road wins against Florida and LSU.

We lost to #4 Utah fall of 1996.
I'd forgotten how often UNLV was ranked #1 when we played them.

Cool find. Thanks for posting. Sadly, we’re just 15-105 in these games. Looks like we got killed by UNLV each time when they were #1. That 2 point loss in 1990 when they were #2 was the water bomb game. The technical FTs turned out to be the difference.

Just for kicks, here is a list of the wins vs AP ranked teams as well as the number of years between victories. Has it really been more than a decade since we've won? Somehow that doesn't seem right.

Uh...didn't we beat Nevada last year when they were ranked #12 and 26-2?

Hmmmm....thought perhaps St. Mary's was ranked when we beat them during the "Jardine" dunk game in 2011 Bracketbusters but they were like 25-6 and happened to not be ranked the week we played them.

I remember the 1999 loss against a top-10 Florida. They should have won that game.

St Mary's had just fallen out of the rankings three weeks previous, when they'd been ranked 22. We were 25 and they were 27 the week that we played them. And despite our win against them, we fell out of the rankings the next week.
