Mountain West Football: Utah State, Boise State, Fresno State in Coaches Poll After Week 12
Mountain West football lands three teams in the latest top 25.
The conference lands three.
The Fresno State Bulldogs clinched their second straight West division on Saturday night, while the Utah State Aggies and Boise State Broncos have set up a winner-take-all showdown for the Mountain division title next weekend. In the meantime, all three are getting their due in the weekly coaches poll.
Utah State’s wild 29-24 win at Colorado State wasn’t enough to keep the Aggies from dropping two spots to #15, while Boise State’s 45-14 victory at New Mexico helped them rise two spots to #22.
Fresno State, which fell out of the top 25 following their loss to the Broncos last Friday night, jumped right back in with a 23-13 win over San Diego State, moving from #27 overall to #23.
As in past weeks, though, all three are looking up at UCF. The Knights defeated Cincinnati, who had been ranked #20, 38-13, and moved up to #9. Additionally, UAB dropped out of the poll after debuting at #25 last week, following a 41-20 loss at Texas A&M.
The only other Power 5 team in this week’s Top 25 is a familiar one. Army, having already beaten Air Force and Hawaii en route to a 9-2 record, debuted at #24 after defeated previously unbeaten Colgate, who just scored the #8 seed in the FCS playoffs.
