BOISE -- The Boise State football team moved up two spots from No. 21 to No. 19 in the latest BCS standings released Sunday night.

Earlier in the day, the  Broncos jumped four spots from No. 18 to No. 14 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll and from No. 19 to No. 17 in the Harris Poll. Those two polls make up the human component of the BCS rankings.

The other part of the BCS, the computers, are less favorible towards the Broncos, lowering their score primarily because of a weak stregnth of schedule.

Boise State beat a struggling Wyoming (1-7) team 45-14 Saturday.

At No. 19, Boise State moves ever closer to nabbing a non-AQ BCS bowl spot, ranking a spot ahead of the lowest-ranked AQ conference leader, Nebraska..
