WASHINGTON JOINS POLLS; BOISE STATE GETS VOTES

Washington’s 38-6 win against Boise State on Saturday allowed the Huskies to jump to No. 20 in The Associated Press Top 25. The Huskies were unranked in the preseason poll.

Boise State, which was No. 19, fell out of the poll but did receive three points in voting. All of the points came from Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press, who ranked the Broncos 23rd.

Washington moved into the USA Today Coaches’ Poll, too, at No. 23. Boise State received five points in that poll.

Fresno State is 32nd in the AP poll and 29th in the USA Today poll. Mountain West members San Jose State and Utah State also received votes in the USA Today poll.

Boise State’s poll performance (eight total points) was its worst since getting two points Nov. 13, 2005. The Broncos did not receive any points in the AP poll for part of the 2007 season but got more than eight in the USA Today poll during that time.

The full polls and my AP ballot are below.

NOTES & QUOTES

— Boise State is paying Tennessee-Martin $425,000 for this week’s game. It’s the Broncos’ first game against a Football Championship Subdivision team since UC Davis in 2009. That game cost $225,000.

— Tennessee-Martin plays two quarterbacks. One of them is Dylan Favre, the nephew of NFL legend Brett Favre. Dylan Favre spent two seasons with Mississippi State and one season at Pearl River Community College. He transferred to UT-Martin this year.

— Boise State sophomore cornerback Donte Deayon: “We’ve got a big chip on our shoulder now. We should’ve started off with it. Some guys did, but we’ll definitely be ready to come out this week.”

— The 592 yards allowed by the Broncos on Saturday was the eighth most in school history. The only game in the WAC/Mountain West era that was worse — 639 yards by Nevada in the four-overtime game in 2007.
