Boise State football rejoins Top 25, extends streak to 18 years

The Boise State football team’s streak of appearing in the Top 25 polls reached 18 seasons Tuesday.

The Broncos landed at No. 24 in The Associated Press Top 25 and USA Today Coaches’ Poll after their upset win Saturday at Florida State. The Broncos erased an 18-point deficit to win 36-31.

They’ll play Marshall on Friday at Albertsons Stadium (7 p.m., ESPN2).

Boise State made its first appearance in the Top 25 during the 2002 season. The Broncos have made at least one appearance every year since, finishing in the rankings 12 times.
