Week 1 College Football Rankings: Boise State Cracks AP, Coaches Poll 25


Broncos earn a ranking after its win over Florida State.

24th in both polls.

Boise State’s win over Florida State was one of the more surprising results of the weekend. The Broncos overcame an 18-point deficit to win 36-31 and that win propelled Boise State in the top 25 in both the USA TODAY Coaches Poll and the AP poll.

Getting into the AP poll seemed like a safe bet as the Broncos were just two spots out of that presseason poll, but they were the eighth team out of the coaches poll but leapfrogged a lot of teams to get to that No. 24 ranking.

Boise State was the only Mountain West team ranked but in the AP poll, Hawaii, Fresno State, and Wyoming all earned a few points in the poll. So, if these teams keep winning — or in the Bulldogs place win — there could be multiple Mountain West teams ranked sooner than later.
