The latest USA TODAY coaches poll gives some respect to the Mountain West. Boise State had been receiving votes the past few weeks but after topping then-No. 17 Fresno State, 24-17 on Friday night. That result knocked the Bulldogs out of the rankings and into the receiving votes category and propelled the Broncos to No. 24 in the latest top 25.

Utah State made another big jump after it cruised to victory over San Jose State 62-24, and the win gave the Aggies a boost to No. 13, up from 16.

What is even more interesting is that how close Utah State is to undefeated Central Florida who had a closer than expected game against Navy.

The polls are starting to stabilize with the good teams, at least in how the coaches votes, there are only two Power Five teams with two losses ahead of Utah State and that is Syracuse which is 12th and LSU at No. 9.

San Diego State is also receiving votes even after the Aztecs lost to UNLV.
