For the first time since last October, the Boise State football team is ranked.
The Broncos made their Associated Press Top 25 debut Sunday, checking in at No. 24. It is their first ranking since the Oct. 11, 2015 poll.
Boise State received 163 points, 17 behind No. 23 Florida and 21 ahead of No. 25 Georgia. The Broncos (3-0) are coming off a 38-24 win at Oregon State on Saturday and host Utah State at 8:15 p.m. Saturday in their Mountain West opener.
In the Amway Coaches Poll, the Broncos are two spots outside the top 25, with 126 points, 16 behind No. 25 Texas.
