College Football Rankings 2012: Boise State re-enters BlogPoll top 25

Otto Kitsinger III

With a sixth consecutive win, the Boise State Broncos finally earned a spot in the BlogPoll top 25 after falling out with a loss in their opener.

An opening week, 17-13 loss to Michigan State wiped the Boise State Broncos out of SB Nation's BlogPoll top 25, but they finally made their way back into the poll, earning the No. 23 spot in the newest edition of the rankings.

A 32-7 win over UNLV was the six consecutive win for the Broncos and they can presumably stay in the top 25 if they continue to earn wins against unranked teams, beginning with the Wyoming Cowboys, their next opponent. None of the remaining teams on Boise State's schedule are ranked, although their regular season ends against the Nevada Wolf Pack, a team that drew votes in the BlogPoll.

None of the Colorado football teams garnered votes, as both Colorado and Colorado State lost in blowout fashion, while the Air Force Falcons won a second game in a row. With Nevada next up on their schedule, the Falcons may be able to earn some votes with a win on Friday.
