College football rankings: Boise State moves up in all polls

Brian Losness-US PRESSWIRE

After a pair of weeks hanging at the bottom of the polls, Boise State jumped into the top 20.

The Boise St. Broncos finally made a move in all three college football polls. For the past few weeks, the Broncos have been stuck at the bottom of the polls, but now they are in the top 20.

Lets start with the AP poll which has Boise State at No. 21, and is the lowest out of the three polls. Plus, this is the only poll that has the Michigan Wolverines ahead of the Broncos.

Here is the AP poll:

With the polls that matter toward the BCS, Boise State is ahead of Michigan and in the top 20 in both. The USA Today Coaches Poll has Boise State at No. 18 and Michigan at No. 20:

Staying ahead of Michigan is the key component if Boise State is going to make a run at a possible BCS game. As long as they stay ahead of Michigan, and the Wolverines are No. 17 or below, then the Broncos will earn a BCS bowl bid.
