The Colorado State Rams had the luxury of the bye week and watched other teams this week, but while they moved up in the Coaches poll the team they really wanted to lose was Boise State. The Broncos recovered from a 20-0 deficit to defeat San Diego State and retain control of the Mountain Division.
Outside of recognition and an edge in recruiting, these rankings really do not matter all that much for Colorado State, because if they are going to make a New Year's Day bowl game they need the Broncos to lose for the Rams to win the Mountain Division.
In thee coaches poll the Rams moved up two spots to No. 23, and Boise State earned votes with 32 points and are just four spots out of being ranked. As for the AP poll, Colorado State is up to No. 22 and Boise State is earning 29 points and is three spots out of being ranked.
