The Boise State football team, which has scored 118 points during its 2-0 start, continues to move up in both major polls.

On Sunday, the Broncos moved up to No. 17 in the Associated Press and USA Today coaches’ polls. They leaped UCF in the AP poll, moving up from No. 20. The Knights moved one spot, from No. 19 to 18. Boise State was one spot ahead of UCF in the coaches’ poll and remained that way with the Knights 18th in that poll, too.

The win sets up a top 25 showdown Saturday between Boise State and Oklahoma State. The Cowboys made their season debut in the AP poll at No. 24, and made the biggest jump in the coaches’ poll, from No. 24 to 19.

Boise State and Oklahoma State face off in Stillwater, Okla., at 1:30 p.m. MT Saturday on ESPN.
