The Boise St. Broncos remained steady this week in the latest AP Poll by staying at No. 5 and holding off the now No. 6 Clemson Tigers. However, the Oklahoma St. Cowboys and the Stanford Cardinal did leap the Broncos from Nos. 6 and 7 to Nos. 3 and 4.
Boise State is the only Mountain West team to make the poll this week, but the TCU Horned Frogs did receive four votes. The 7-0 Houston Cougars are the only other non-BCS conference school to make this week's poll.
Remember, the AP poll does not play a part in the BCS standings.
Here's the AP Poll top 25 for Week 9:
Others receiving votes: Auburn 62, Southern Miss. 48, Baylor 47, Washington 32, Georgia Tech 30, Texas 26, Syracuse 24, Miami 6, TCU 4, Rutgers 3, BYU 2, Illinois 2.
