It wasn't pretty, but the Boise State Broncos defeated the BYU Cougars on Thursday night, 7-6, and with the victory the Broncos remain No. 24 in this week's Associated Press Top 25 Poll.
The Alabama Crimson Tide continue their stronghold on the No. 1 position in the poll, with the Oregon Ducks jumping the LSU Tigers to grab the No. 2 spot this week. LSU's less-than-impressive win over Auburn is the cause of the slide, though the Tigers still did garner one first place vote. Florida State and Georgia round out the Top 5 this week.
Three new undefeated teams jumped into the AP Poll this week: Oregon State at No. 18, Rutgers at No. 23, and Baylor at No. 25.
