Broncos and Falcons are in the top 25.

The final USA TODAY and Associated Press top 25 are out and with an abbreviated schedule of only conference title games there was little movement.

Boise State won the conference title game over Hawaii by 21 points so their ranking was not going to change much. Well, there was movement in both polls. The AP poll flip-flopped Boise State with Iowa which placed the Broncos at 18.

However, the coaches poll swapped an idle and 9-3 Michigan for some reason with Boise State which drops to 18. This is the same set of coaches that dropped Virginia only three spots to 25 after getting destroyed by Clemson, 62-17.

Air Force remains in the rankings and moves up one spot to 24th in both the AP and coaches poll. If the Falcons win their bowl game they will be ranked in the final polls and it will be the first time since 1998, the final year of them being in the WAC.

San Diego State also earned five points in the final coaches poll.
