The first coaches poll is out and the Mountain West is fairing quite well on the national scene. Boise State’s thumping of Sun Belt heavyweight Troy pushed the Broncos up a few spots to No. 19 which is up three spots from the preseason poll.

Boise State moved up not only in part of that win but also because Miami, Michigan and Florida State lost its opening games.

While the Broncos are the only Mountain West team to be ranked, there are three others in consideration. Fresno State is getting seven points after it put up 79 in its win over Idaho and are earning seven points, Hawaii is 2-0 and earned four points and San Diego State is still getting respect after losing to Stanford and is getting one point.

Other important notes from the poll is that UCF also moved up three spots after toppling UConn and is at 20 behind Boise State. This will be a race to watch as the Broncos and Knights are expected to be the top contenders for the coveted Group of Five berth to a New Year’s Six bowl game.
