College Football Rankings: Boise State Plummets In Week 14 USA Today Poll

The BCS non-automatic qualifier conferences saw their flagship go down in Week 13. But that's okay: another flagship was following closely behind.

Boise State takes a tumble in the USA Today coaches poll for Week 14, falling from third to 10th after losing to Nevada. But TCU slides up to third from fourth, and is now all but guaranteed a Rose Bowl berth as the presumptive top-ranked non-AQ team in the final BCS rankings.

Boise's conqueror, Nevada, doesn't get much of a boost after its win, moving up just two spots from 19th to 17th.

But it's a really good week for non-BCS conferences in general, thanks to a spate of losses by barely ranked BCS conference squads. Six teams from non-BCS conferences are ranked in the Week 14 USA Today poll — including Northern Illinois, ranked for the first time this year, at 23rd, and Central Florida, ranked again at 25th — which would tie the non-BCS conferences as a unit with the SEC for most ranked teams this week.

Full non-BCS conference rankings are as follows:

- No. 3 TCU
- No. 10 Boise State
- No. 17 Nevada
- No. 21 Utah
- No. 23 Northern Illinois
- No. 25 Central Florida
