BCS standings 2012: Boise State move up to No. 21

Otto Kitsinger III

Following their win over the UNLV Rebels, the Boise State Broncos have shot up to No. 21 in the BCS Standings.

As has been the case for most of the 2012 season, the Boise State Broncos are the lone team from the Rocky Mountain region to stay in the BCS top 25. The Broncos bolstered their record to 6-1 with a win in their 'blackout' game against UNLV, putting down the Rebels, 32-7.

It was enough to move the Broncos up three spots in the standings, from No. 24 to No. 21 on the BCS chart. That spot puts them ahead of Michigan, Texas, Ohio and Wisconsin. They are the only team in the top 25, from the Mountain West Conference.

Winning the MWC will certainly help the Broncos if they want to end the year high in the standings, and Boise State blog One Bronco Nation Under God pointed out that the Nevada Wolfpack are suddenly looking a lot less challenging after their loss to San Diego State:

Does this take some shine off of Boise State's December 1 game against the Wolf Pack? Absolutely, yes. But I kind of take comfort knowing the Broncos have more margin for error in the conference now that Nevada has proven highly beatable.

Boise's lone loss was against the Michigan State Spartans in their first game of the season, and they have not lost since. They will face off against the Wyoming Cowboys in their next conference match-up on Saturday.
