After its 7-6 win against BYU, Boise State stayed right where it was in the two major polls, probably because people would just like to assume the game never happened in the first place. Take a number, America. Bronco Nation has the market currently cornered on revisionist history.
Here now are the polls that matter or are interesting or both.
|BCS||Available October 21|
|Harris||Available October 14|
|Kenneth Massey||38||84||▲ 46|
|Colley Matrix||40||74||▲ 34|
|Anderson Hester||Available October 14|
|Wolfe||Available October 14|
|Simulated BCS||23||26||▲ 3|
This is what the polls are: BCS rankings (two humans and a compendium of computers), USA Today Coaches' Poll (college football coaches and interns of coaches), Harris Poll (somewhat important people somewhat associated with college football), AP Top 25 (media), Chadd Cripe (Idaho Statesman reporter), SB Nation Blogpoll (bloggers), Sagarin Ratings w/ ELO_CHESS (computer), Billingsley (computer), Kenneth Massey (computer), Colley Matrix (computer), Anderson and Hester (computer), Peter Wolfe (computer), and simulated BCS (via SB Nation's Samuel Chi).
Last week's biggest Bronco fan in the AP poll, Seth Emerson, dropped Boise State five spots from No. 17 to No. 22. He has Louisiana Tech at No. 23, the highest of any of his fellow AP voters. Conclusion: Emerson likes offense; LaTech has offense; Boise State doesn't.
The new top Bronco voter is Lexington, Kentucky, newspaper columnist John Clay who has the Broncos at No. 18.
Boise State is the second team on deck in the Coaches' Poll but 28th overall since there is a tie at No. 25.
The teams in Boise State's immediate vicinity include Northwestern, Baylor, Rutgers, Michigan, and Nebraska. Virginia Tech is above the Broncos in the Coaches poll and waaaay behind BSU in the AP.
Louisiana Tech and San Jose State are both receiving votes. Oh, to be in the WAC again!
