Boise State is the highest ranked team

For the second week in a row the Mountain West has three teams ranked in the USA TODAY coaches poll. Obviously, Boise State is the highest ranked team after defeating Utah State to clinch the Mountain Division title.

That win put the Broncos up two spots from 22nd to 20th, and the Aggies losing by nine points did not knock them out of the polls as they are sitting at 24th with a pair of losses.

Fresno State remains the same and are No. 23 after beating rival San Jose State, despite a dreadful 3-0 lead at the half. The Mountain West has rarely had three teams ranked at once and the last time the leagued achieved that was back in 2010, and the league was very much different. Doing it for the second straight week is a big time achievement.
