Even though the latest BCS projections are not kind to Boise State, the USA Today Coaches poll is rewarding Boise State for their win and by keeping them ahead of the Clemson Tigers, so it is possible that if the computers are still down on Clemson then Boise may stay ahead of Clemson. Outside of teams ahead of Boise State losing is teams they have played or will play are moving up the rankings.
TCU who blasted New Mexico 69-0 is on the verge of being ranked and is at No. 28 overall, so it is very possible that TCU could be ranked when they travel to Boise on Nov. 12. The Georgia Bulldogs are also going to help Boise at least in the computer rankings, because the Bulldogs enter the poll at No. 21 and are in contention for the SEC East title.
One thing I would like to point out in these rankings is that the BYU Cougars are getting votes. they currently sit at 6-2 and have won five straight, but four of their wins have come against San Jose State, Idaho State, Oregon State and Utah State. That is not the most impressive bunch, so it goes to show that the pollsters look mainly at record and that is my only reasoning to why BYU is getting consideration.
Also, it looks like C-USA is getting stronger as they have two teams in the rankings with Houston at No. 18 and Southern Miss at No. 25.
Here is the latest USA Today coaches top 25:
