There were days a few years ago when Boise State would go undefeated, look great in every game and have an argument that they were being shafted by the BCS rankings in the end when they could never quite crack No. 1. Those days are gone now, and Boise State can't complain much about being dropped a bit more every week in both the real rankings and the simulated rankings.
In the newest simulated rankings, the Broncos dropped out of the top 25, down to No. 27. That's coming on the heels of a tight 32-29 win over the New Mexico Lobos, one of the top offensive performances of the season for Boise State following an even tighter 7-6 win that saw zero points out of the attacking side of the ball. Boise State is currently 3-1 on the season with a 1-0 conference record after beating New Mexico.
Boise State had been ranked No. 23 in last week's simulated rankings after the 7-6 victory over BYU.
