Boise State Broncos remain ranked in coaches poll after bye

There were some movers and shakers in this week’s college football polls, with the Boise State Broncos hanging on in one poll.

Seven teams in the top-25 lost this past week, meaning we’d likely see a few new teams jumping into the mix. The question remained, however, is how these games — and an Oklahoma State loss — would affect the Boise State Broncos.

The polls were released Sunday morning, with Boise State still finding a ranking in the Amway Coaches Poll, coming in at number 25. The Broncos fell a spot from the previous week, but actually received more points (145) than week four (114 points).

The Cowboys, who defeated Boise State 44-21 a little over a week ago, fell at home 41-17 to the Texas Tech Red Raiders. This loss dropped Oklahoma State from 15th to 21st.

Overall, three teams (TCU, Texas A&M, and Boston College) fell from the rankings. The Duke Blue Devils (no. 23), Texas Longhorns (no. 22), and the Kentucky Wildcats (no. 17) all entered the poll.

Central Florida, meanwhile, rose to number 14 after their 56-36 victory over Florida Atlantic.

Over on the AP side of things, Boise State actually lost votes and fell to two places outside of the top-25 with 58 votes. Five new teams entered the rankings, including the Cal Bears (no. 24), Texas (no. 18), and Kentucky (no. 17).

Oklahoma State (last week: 15) and Virginia Tech (last week: 13) were two teams who took big tumbles out of the rankings.

UCF moved up a few spots in the AP poll, now sitting at number 13.
