Top 26 poll: Boise State asserts its greatness

Boise State eked into the the Bronco blogger Top 26 poll last week, and they blew the sucker up this week. The Broncos jumped from No. 25 to No. 17 courtesy of their defining win over Oregon. Kudos to Drew from Fight Fight BSU for having the highest ranking for the Broncos at No. 13. Your honesty and accuracy are admirable.

In other news, the top of the poll is starting to look more and more like the national media's votes. USC is slowly taking its stranglehold on No. 1 (Kevan has yet to give up on LSU, probably because he's stubborn and ignorant), and the top six teams were pretty much the same on everyone's poll. This college football ranking thing is easier than we thought.

As always, for more information, visit the Top 26 poll homepage or download the Week Five Top 26 poll pdf.

  • LSU at No. 4 over Florida because the Tigers are the defending National Champs and Florida hasn’t shown me they are any better.

  • Wisconsin at No. 7 because I love the Badgers, and I am not a Texas fan.

  • BYU at No. 12 because they are really good, but I don’t think they are good enough to be in the top 11.

  • I dropped Ohio State because I believe they are the most overrated program in the nation. Plus they don’t have a quarterback.

  • I’ve got Boise State at No. 19 because I think they are better than all the teams behind them.

  • I have Colorado in at No. 25 for two reasons: 1) being they are my alma-mater, and 2) they beat No. 21 West Virginia and held them to only 14 points.
