College Football Rankings: Boise State Right Outside Top 25

Scheduling a tough out-of-conference road game hasn't done much good for Boise State yet, at least with SB Nation's BlogPoll voters, as the Broncos remain in the others receiving votes category after Week 2 of the college football season.

Boise State lost to Michigan State, a team that looks like it could contend for a Big Ten title, in a tough 17-13 defeat in Week 1, but the 0-1 record is all the pollsters seem to see right now when evaluating the Broncos.

They're set to join the Big East in 2013, but for now, they will struggle with the problem that has plagued them throughout their last decade: they don't have many more opportunities for a quality win on their 2012 schedule.

BYU, whom they will face in Week 4, is their only ranked opponent left on the slate, as the Mountain West Conference has been decimated by defections in the last few seasons.

Boise, as they've already found out this year, won't be given much leeway for any slippage, regardless of the brand name they've developed.
