BCS rankings: Boise State come in lower than expected at No. 19

Otto Kitsinger III

Boise State moved up just two spots in the latest BCS standings, to No. 19

The latest BCS standings are out and Boise State did not move up as high as they thought, and come in at No. 19. They do move up two spots from last week, and are still ahead of Nebraska who is at No. 20. However, with their big jump in the USA Today Coaches Poll to No. 14, the thought was that the Broncos would be closer to that No. 16 spot.

Just blame it on the computers, in the top 25 teams ranked Boise State is ahead of just Louisiana Tech (.000) and Oklahoma State (.070). If Boise State was just .05 higher in their computer average, then they would be in that 16th spot. This thing is extremely close.

At this point Boise State needs to win, hope the Big Ten keeps cannibalizing itself, Louisville stumbles and their opponents keep winning. Really, Boise State should easily make it to that 16th spot, they just need for the Big Ten, or maybe Big East champ, to not rise about that. Getting to No. 12 will be tough.

Here are the latest BCS standings:
