A pair of big wins last weekend not only may have turned around Buffalo’s season, but they helped the Bandits escape from the bottom of the ILIndoor.com’s power rankings.
Buffalo was the biggest mover of Week 11, rising three spots to No. 6.
The Bandits snapped a franchise-record six-game losing streak with a 21-14 win Friday at Toronto, then followed with a 13-10 victory at home against Minnesota on Saturday.
With just five teams having played this past weekend, there was little movement otherwise in the newest rankings.
Philadelphia, which defeated Edmonton, and the Swarm swapped the third and fourth spots. The Rock, idle Washington and the Rush now occupy the bottom three slots after each dropping one spot.
This Saturday, Toronto will look to win its eighth straight matchup with Rochester, which stayed at No. 5.
Colorado and Calgary, also both idle this past weekend, continue to hold down the top two spots, respectively.
The Mammoth will play the Wings in a home-and-home series Friday in Denver and Sunday in Philadelphia. The Roughnecks will host the Bandits on Saturday.
