Utah State is ranked 13th in the coaches poll and 14th in the AP poll, but for the past few weeks the Aggies have been shutout of the College Football Playoff top 25.

Things look good for the Aggies to get ranked with teams in the low teens and 20s dropping out and we predicted Utah State in the top 25, along with Boise State.

However, Jerry Palm of CBS Sports did not rank either team, so there was some concern coming into these rankings that the Aggies would be shutout again.

The College Football Playoff Committee ended up ranking two Mountain West teams with Boise State at 25th and Utah State at 23rd.

The Broncos upset win over then-No. 23 Fresno State proved to be enough to get ranked.

As for the Aggies, they just kept winning and dominating the competition.

There are now four Group of Five teams in the playoff rankings. UCF moved up a spot to 11 and Cincinnati is sandwiched between Boise State and Utah State at No. 24.

This sets up huge showdowns in the coming weeks as Boise State takes on Utah State in the season finale, and UCF hosts Cincinnati this week is a likely an elimination game for the American.
