The season is off to a BANG!


Punch or no punch, the Boise State Broncos opened the season by taking down the University of Oregon 19-8. That moved the team up two spots in the AP poll, and five spots in the USA TODAY coaches poll.

In the AP TOP 25 poll, Boise State is now ranked 12, but BYU jumped 11 spots to number 9 after the upset over Oklahoma this past weekend. Oklahoma dropped 10 spots after that! Here are the numbers, and how it all breaks down:

AP TOP 25

1 Florida (56) 1-0 1493
2 Texas (2) 1-0 1424
3 USC 1-0 1355
4 Alabama (2) 1-0 1331
5 Oklahoma State 1-0 1201
6 Mississippi 1-0 1095
7 Penn State 1-0 1082
8 Ohio State 1-0 985
9 Brigham Young 1-0 984
10 California 1-0 971
11 LSU 1-0 890
12 Boise State 1-0 882
13 Oklahoma 0-1 782
14 Virginia Tech 0-1 652
15 Georgia Tech 1-0 630

This does create a bit of a conflict between BYU and BSU fans - it will be interesting to see how it all plays out! In the USA Today Coaches Poll, BYU jumped from 24th to 12th. Boise State earned the number 11 ranking, just one spot ahead of the Cougars.

USA TODAY

1 Florida (56) 1-0 1472
2 Texas (2) 1-0 1407
3 USC (1) 1-0 1352
4 Alabama 1-0 1299
5 Penn State 1-0 1145
6 Oklahoma State 1-0 1114
7 Ohio State 1-0 1106
8 Mississippi 1-0 1006
9 LSU 1-0 977
10 California 1-0 935
11 Boise State 1-0 803
12 Brigham Young 1-0 755
13 Georgia Tech 1-0 685
14 Oklahoma 0-1 682
15 Virginia Tech 0-1 633

The Associated Press poll doesn't have any bearing on the Bowl Championship Series standings. BUT, The USA Today poll is one of several parts of the calculations. Our sports team says the coaches poll is the one to watch because that's the one that figures into the BCS formula. Our Broncos need to keep winning to stay in the running for a BOWL GAME.

This weekend's game is against the Miami of Ohio Redhawks on the BLUE. KTVB - The Official Station for Bronco Nation - will be broadcasting the game Saturday night. We have a special hour long pre-game show planned for you at 5pm, and kickoff is at 6pm!

Here's a look at the morning crew (our production crew included!) at the BSU vs OREGON game... notice Doug went shirtless and painted up - all in the name of the BRONCOS.

Larry and Edgar forgot... or did they???
