Broncos Drop to No. 5 in BCS Standings

                BOISE, Idaho - Boise State (7-0, 2-0 MW) dropped one position to No. 5 in this week's Bowl Championship Series Standings, and remained fifth in the three major college polls after having its final bye week of the 2011 season this past Saturday (Oct. 29).

                The Broncos fell to No. 5 despite having the fourth best computer average and improving its BCS average score from .8302 to .8522.

                Stanford moved past Boise State to the No. 4 spot following its three-overtime win at USC.  The Cardinal increased its BCS average by .0491 to move up two positions and jump the Broncos.  Stanford is also ranked ahead of the Broncos in the USA Today Coaches and Harris Interactive polls. 

                The coaches and Harris polls, along with the BCS computer average, makes up the total score in the BCS Standings.

                Boise State is once again ranked No. 5 in the coaches, Harris and Associated Press polls.  The AP poll does not count in the BCS Standings.

                The top three spots in the BCS Standings remained the same with LSU coming in at No. 1 followed by Alabama and Oklahoma State.  LSU and Alabama face each other this Saturday in Tuscaloosa. 

                The Broncos are back in action this Saturday (Nov. 5) when they travel to Las Vegas to face UNLV.  Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. (PT).
