Mid-Major top 10: Fresno State tops our initial poll

The Mid-Major top 10 poll is now a thing, and here is our initial ballot.

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Normally we would have our individual ballot up before the final results, but this was the first week of the poll, so things were a little hectic. Our poll has the two obvious teams at the top in Fresno State and Northern Illinois, and then we went with Boise State followed by BYU.

I am shocked that Boise State ended up No. 5 in the final poll behind and East Carolina, but that might have to do with the Broncos already has two losses. The others also are not as high as BYU, and I know that makes some people happy, but they easily got through Utah State's defense.

My vote for Utah State this week is pretty much a token vote for what they have done all year, so next week they will be looked at more objectively.
