College Football Rankings 2011: Boise State No. 4, Stanford No. 5 In Coaches Poll

In the latest edition of the USA Today Coaches poll, the Boise St. Broncos come in at the No. 4 spot and move past the Florida St. Seminoles who lost to the Oklahoma Sooners, 23-13, and then fell down to No. 14. Boise State is barely in the fourth spot as they are only four total points ahead of No. 5 Stanford Cardinal.

TCU also moved up in the Coaches poll, from No. 23 to No. 20 after their win over Louisiana-Monroe. The final Mountain West team to gain some consideration is San Diego State, who is in the others receiving votes category for their 3-0 start on the season.

The Oregon Ducks moved up on spot to No. 13 and that was due to Florida State's loss than it was for the Ducks win over Missouri State. Utah and Arizona State are in the others receiving votes categories. Utah moved in due to their 54-10 rout over BYU while Arizona State dropped after their 17-14 loss to Illinois.
