The Boise State football team did not receive a point in voting for The Associated Press Top 25 or USA Today Coaches’ Poll on Sunday — the first shutout for the Broncos since Oct. 16, 2005.

That also was the last time the Broncos sustained two early losses — at Georgia and at Oregon State.

Fresno State, which beat Boise State 41-40 on Friday at Bulldog Stadium, moved into the AP poll at No. 25 and climbed to No. 23 in USA Today.

Washington, the other team that beat Boise State this season, is No. 16 in AP and No. 20 in USA Today.
