Final college football rankings: Boise State lone Mountain West team to be ranked

Brian Losness-US PRESSWIRE

Boise State finished the 2012 season ranked No. 18 in AP and 14 in the coaches poll.

The 2012 college football season is over (sad face), and the final rankings have been released, and the only Mountain West team to be ranked in the Boise St. Broncos. The Broncos came in at No. 14 in the coaches poll and No. 18 in the AP poll.

Boise State was the highest non-AQ school to be ranked in the coaches poll, but Utah State earned that distinction in the AP poll. Speaking of future Mountain West teams, Utah State came in at No. 17 in the AP poll and coaches poll.

Then there is San Jose State who finished at No. 21 in both polls.

The oddest vote in either the poll was in the AP poll where one voter gave a 25th place vote to FCS champion North Dakota State.
