BYU football keeps inching up national rankings following 51-17 win over Boise State

(Steve Conner | The Associated Press) BYU quarterback Zach Wilson (1) prepares to throw a pass against Boise State during the first half of an NCAA college football game Friday, Nov. 6, 2020, in Boise, Idaho.

After a dominating 51-17 win at Boise State, and over a ranked opponent no less, BYU continues to rise in the national rankings.
In the latest Associated Press Top 25 Poll, released Sunday, the Cougars found themselves in the No. 8 spot. The Broncos, however, didn’t fare as well. Boise State got bumped out of both the AP Poll and the Amway Coaches Poll.
In Sunday’s updated Amway Coaches Poll, BYU also moved up one spot to No. 8.
The latest rankings bode well for BYU, inching the Cougars closer to earning an New Year’s Six bowl bid and possibly even landing them just outside of the College Football Playoff. The best thing BYU will be able to do now is to win out the remaining two games of the season.

After a bye this week, the Cougars will welcome North Alabama on Nov. 21. The Lions lost their third straight game Saturday against Southern Miss. BYU is 14-0 all-time versus FCS opponents and is averaging a score of 46-8 in those games.
In the last game of the season (as of now, BYU officials have yet to disclose if more games will be added this season), the Cougars will host San Diego State on Dec. 12.
Last year, the Aztecs snapped BYU’s five-game winning streak and gave the offense a lot of trouble, beating the Cougars 13-3. This season, San Diego State has started with a 2-1 record, most recently losing 28-17 against San Jose State. The Aztecs will host Hawaii on Nov. 14 before traveling to Provo.
