The latest Sagarin ratings are out and the Boise St. Broncos are the No. 4 team according to the numbers. Recall that the Sagarin ratings are one of the six sets of numbers that make up one-third of the BCS rankings. The Broncos moved up after the Oklahoma Sooners lost to the Texas Tech Raiders on Saturday.

Clemson and Stanford are both undefeated and it was previously thought both would lead the Broncos in the BCS standings and other polls. Stanford moved up in the AP poll, but the Cardinal and the Tigers are behind No. 7 Oklahoma at Nos. 8 and 9. One-loss Oregon and two-loss Texas A&M are Nos. 5 and 6.

The Broncos might actually move up in the BCS standings if the rest of the computers are still down on Stanford and Clemson.

In local Colorado action, Air Force is the highest school at No. 70. Colorado checks in at No. 120, Colorado State at No. 140 and FCS Northern Colorado is No. 221 out of 246 teams.
