Big changes in week 7 coaches poll

Three of the top five schools in the Coaches Poll last week tumbled, leaving three new schools in their place in the Week 7 rankings.


Boise, Utah State still outside of the Top 25

After four weeks in the 2012 season, both Boise State and Utah State are one close loss in a road non-conference games from being ranked in SB Nation's latest BlogPoll.

The Broncos, at 2-1, and the Aggies, at 3-1, are both still stuck in the "others receiving votes" category, which can happen when you're a one-loss team in a non-BCS conference.

However, both teams losses came in road nail-biters to Big Ten teams, with Boise State losing, 17-13, to Michigan State and Utah State losing, 16-14, to Wisconsin.

Unfortunately, neither team has another game against a currently-ranked opponent in their 2012 schedule, which means they may need to go nearly perfect over the next two months to gain much national attention.

It's a sharp contrast with Colorado, who has dates with UCLA, USC, Oregon and Stanford, the latter three all ranked in the BlogPoll, over the next five games.

The Buffaloes will have a lot of chances to make an impression with voters over the next month, but it probably won't end up being a positive one.


College Football Rankings, Week 5: Boise State Remains No. 24 In Latest AP Poll

It wasn't pretty, but the Boise State Broncos defeated the BYU Cougars on Thursday night, 7-6, and with the victory the Broncos remain No. 24 in this week's Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

The Alabama Crimson Tide continue their stronghold on the No. 1 position in the poll, with the Oregon Ducks jumping the LSU Tigers to grab the No. 2 spot this week. LSU's less-than-impressive win over Auburn is the cause of the slide, though the Tigers still did garner one first place vote. Florida State and Georgia round out the Top 5 this week.

Three new undefeated teams jumped into the AP Poll this week: Oregon State at No. 18, Rutgers at No. 23, and Baylor at No. 25.
