Broncos move up one spot in College Football Playoff Rankings

With one week to go in the regular season, Boise State is praying for a Hail Mary, or, perhaps, a Statue Left.

The Broncos move up one spot to number 19 in the College Football Playoff rankings heading into possibly the last regular season game at Air Force.

The new ranking is the highest the Broncos have seen so far in the CFB polls. Boise State lost to Wyoming after reaching 13th in both the AP and Coaches poll the week before the first CFB poll debut this year.

Boise State is currently the highest-ranked Group of 5 team with Houston (20), Western Michigan (21), and Navy (25) tailing.

As the current bowls stand, Western Michigan is slated to play in the Cotton Bowl as an at-large selection if they win out and are conference champions.

In order for the Broncos to make the Cotton Bowl, they would need to beat Air Force and see New Mexico beat Wyoming in Albuquerque in order to make it to the Mountain West Conference Championship game.

Fans need to hope that with rivalry week looming, the cards finally fall the Bronco’s way. Boise State has been at the mercy of November football the past few seasons. With the right combination, Bronco fans might see Boise State live another week.
