Losses by several teams in the back end of last week's USA Today Coaches' Poll allowed the Boise State Broncos to sneak in at No. 25 this week.
Boise State nearly lost at New Mexico, holding off a late charge from the Lobos to win, 32-29. Still, they reentered the rankings after Michigan State, Oklahoma State, Wisconsin, Baylor and Virginia Tech all lost on Saturday. The Cincinnati Bearcats, who defeated Virginia Tech, were among the three other newcomers, along with Northwestern and Texas Tech.
Washington and UCLA, who entered the AP Top 25 this week after big conference victories, were held out of the Coaches' Poll. They, along with Arizona State, are in the upper portion of the "others receiving votes" section. Meanwhile, fellow Pac-12 teams Oregon (No. 2), USC (No. 12) and Stanford (No. 18) all remain ranked.
