Boise State Football

Boise State football stays put in Top 25 polls, returns to action this week

The Boise State football team remained No. 16 in The Associated Press Top 25 and No. 15 in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll on Sunday.

The Broncos had a bye last week. They play Saturday at UNLV (8:30 p.m., CBS Sports Network). UNLV is 1-3 after a 53-17 loss at Wyoming.

UCF (4-1) is up to No. 18 in the AP poll and No. 19 in USA Today, hinting that the Knights could challenge the Broncos for the Group of Five berth in the New Year’s Six even if the Broncos (4-0) are undefeated.

Alabama jumped Clemson for No. 1 in both polls.
