Week 3 Coaches poll: Fresno State on outside looking in

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Fresno State is two spots away from being ranked in the coaches poll.

Fresno State is 2-0 and are inching up toward being ranked in the USA Today Coaches poll. They are No. 27 with 59 points in the poll's third week edition. Boise State is getting some poll love with three points and Utah State has two points after thrashing Air Force for their first ever Mountain West game. Figured Utah State would have earned more points after scoring 52 points over the Falcons, but guess not.

Next week's Mountain West games do not allow for many to move up as Boise State plays Air Force, Utah State hosts Weber State and Fresno State plays Colorado.

Here is the complete poll:
