Poll:
After Boise State's close win against BYU, are the Broncos a top 25 team?

BOISE -- The Boise State football team stood still in both the Associated Press Top 25 and USA Today Coaches' polls, checking in at No. 24 and No. 27, respectively, on Sunday.

In the AP Poll, The Broncos gained 19 points following Thursday’s 7-6 defensive slugfest with BYU at Bronco Stadium. While the Broncos offensive failed to score a touchdown for the second time in three games this season, the defense limited the Cougars to 200 yards of total offense and forced a season-high five turnovers.

There was plenty of moving and shaking at the back end of the AP poll, as the Broncos were jumped in the poll by three teams. Eighteenth-ranked Oregon State (won at UCLA, 27-20), along with No. 22 Nebraska (won vs Idaho State, 73-7) and No. 23 Rutgers (won at Arkansas, 35-23) all picked up impressive wins, while UCLA (lost vs Oregon State, 27-20), Michigan (lost vs Notre Dame, 13-6), and Arizona (lost at Oregon, 49-0) all fell out.

For the second straight week, the Boise State football team failed to move up in the USA Today Coaches' Poll following a win.

Boise State hauled in 69 points, one short of last week’s total.

The Broncos were ranked No. 22 in the preseason coaches poll and fell to No. 25 following their season-opening loss to then-No. 11 Michigan State. Boise State then dropped out of the top 25 after their bye three weeks ago, ending a run of 63 straight weeks as a ranked team.

No. 21 Oregon State, No. 24 Baylor and No. 25 Rutgers all make their first appearance in the top 25, while No. 25 Virginia Tech (tied with Rutgers with 98 points) returns after a loss to Pittsburgh two weeks ago that dropped them from No. 13 to No. 26.
