Boise State loses some support in AP media poll | College football

Boise State lost seven of its eight first-place votes in the Associated Press media poll released Sunday. The Broncos remained at No. 3, but their opening victory over Virginia Tech on Sept. 6 looked less significant after Virginia Tech lost at home Saturday to James Madison.

The combination of solid victories by No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Ohio State and a stunning loss by Virginia Tech led to Boise State losing seven of its eight first-place votes in the AP Top 25.

The Broncos were still No. 3 in the media poll released Sunday, but their gap from the top teams widened.

Alabama received 52 first-place votes and 1,466 points. Ohio State had five first-place votes and 1,410 points and Boise State received one first-place vote and 1,306.

Boise State opened with a 33-30 victory over then-No. 10 Virginia Tech last Monday in Landover, Md. But the Broncos' victory lost some of its luster when Virginia Tech lost at home 21-16 to James Madison on Saturday.

Texas Christian remained fourth and Oregon jumped two spots to No. 5 after winning 48-13 at Tennessee.
