The Boise St. Broncos stayed pat at No. 6 after their 57-7 victory over Fresno Sate, however the Broncos are only two points ahead of the Oklahoma St. Cowboys.

The other Pac-12 teams in the rankings are the Oregon Ducks who stay at No. 9 after their 43-15 win over Cal and the Arizona St. Sun Devils who moved up to No. 20 after they defeated the Utah Utes 35-14.

The TCU Horned Frogs moved back into the receiving votes category by earning four points after they rebounded from their loss to SMU to defeat the San Diego St. Aztecs 27-14.
