Look for a lot of movement going forward

The latest AP and coaches poll are out and it does include Boise State and Air Force earning points in the latter but only the Falcons are earning votes in the former.

These polls will look really odd once more and more teams are back playing with the Big Ten, Mountain West and Pac-12 over the next month. All of those leagues are eligible to be ranked and those who have not played are somewhat getting penalized compared to those who have not played.

Fair or not, that is how voters are submitting their ballot which is fine since not seeing some teams played compared to others makes it a tricky voting process.

Even though no Mountain West teams are ranked this week, the league is a big winner with the AAC taking a big tumble with Memphis and UCF losing. The Tigers fell out of the rankings and UCF is sitting at 25 in the coaches poll and out of the AP poll, but Cincinnati is nearing the top 10 and SMU at 21 in the coaches poll. Having these teams fall out of the rankings helps the conference’s chances to get to a New Year’s Six bowl game,

In the coaches poll, Boise State has 30 votes and Air Force earning 13 votes after its 40-7 win over Navy.
