The first college football playoff rankings will be released this week, but the AP and Coaches Poll were released today and a few Mountain West teams narrowly missed the rankings. In the Coaches Poll Nevada was the first team out of the rankings and will likely enter the poll with a win over Hawaii next weekend. San Jose State also received 13 votes, while Boise State received 11.
In the AP Poll, Nevada was third in the receiving votes category (28th) with 23 votes. Boise State received 6 votes, while San Jose State received 3 votes.
