TCU Jumps Boise State in Latest USA Today Coaches Poll

New, comments

Two big things happened in this poll, first TCU jumped Boise and rose from sixth to fourth in the poll, but it is a very slim margin with TCU leading by six points.  The other is that the coaches, SID, or assistant who votes in this poll moved UP Iowa after their latest come from behind win.

Iowa won and overcame six turnovers in the game, but why does inertia take place just because they won.  Yes, USC lost but that does not mean Iowa should move up.  Oregon should be ahead of Iowa as should Cincy.  The Bearcats beat a bad Syracuse team easily 28-7 with their backup quarterback, so not sure why Iowa gets the nod to not only be ahead of Cincy but to jump them as well. 

The Utes move up from 19th to 16th and BYU who benefited from the bye week is back in the polls at number 25.  Check the entire poll below, and look for the BCS standings release with analysis later today.
