2011 Boise State Football Intro

Who'da thunk it? Boise State didn't even play this week and they advanced in the USA Today Coaches Poll.  Already at in the AP, by coaches. Sweeeeeet.

The Boise State Broncos, even with a bye week, managed to pick up a spot in the USA Today Coaches Poll. 

The Broncos also retained their number 4 ranking in the Associated Press Top 25, garnering two first place votes. 

Next up for the Broncos is Toledo in Toledo. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.

Seeing as how Toledo almost beat Ohio State last weekend, I don't expect this next game to be a snoozer either!

Not only did the Broncos from to after the win over the Bulldogs, they are also going to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week. Sweet!

Boise State moved up a notch to No. 4 after its impressive 35-21 win against Georgia, including two first place votes. The Broncos also moved up two spots in the latest USA Today Coaches Poll, coming in at No. 5. Georgia dropped out of both polls.

Winning the biggest game of college football's opening weekend boosted LSU to No. 2 in The Associated Press Top 25.

No. 1 Oklahoma held on to the top spot in the first regular-season rankings, while the Tigers used their 40-27 victory against Oregon to jump rival Alabama, which slipped to No. 3. Florida State moved up to No. 5.

Oregon dropped nine spots to No. 13 and defending national champion Auburn, which started the season at No. 23, fell out of the Top 25 after needing a late rally to beat Utah State at home. Notre Dame also dropped out.

Moving into the rankings were No. 20 Baylor, No. 22 South Florida, No. 23 Penn State and No. 24 Texas.
