Bronco Beat

Boise State football moves up in AP, coaches polls

Following their 42-25 win over UNLV on Friday, the Boise State Broncos moved into the top 20 in both the Associated Press and Amway coaches polls Sunday.

The Broncos are ranked No. 20 in the AP poll, up two spots from last week, and No. 19 in the coaches poll, up four spots. Boise State (10-1) clinched its 12th double-digit win season in the last 15 years with the win over the Rebels. Seven teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision have 10 or more wins this season.

Boise State was No. 20 in the most recent College Football Playoff rankings, which will be announced at 5 p.m. Tuesday on ESPN. The Broncos play at Air Force at 1:30 p.m. Friday, televised on CBS Sports Network. If they win, and Wyoming loses to New Mexico on Saturday night, the Broncos will play in the Mountain West championship Dec. 3 at Albertsons Stadium. A loss to the Falcons or a Wyoming win, and Boise State is out of contention.
