BOISE -- For the first time this season, the Boise State football team is ranked in both the Amway Coaches Poll and the Associated Press Top 25.

The Broncos went from unranked to No. 19 in the coaches poll, and jumped from No. 24 to No. 19 in the AP Top 25 following Saturday night's 21-10 win against Utah State.

This is the highest Boise State has been ranked since the end of the 2014 season; the Broncos finished that year No. 16 in both polls following a 38-30 victory over Arizona in the Fiesta Bowl.

Through five weeks of the college football season, Boise State is one of just two teams in the FBS that have not trailed in a game this season. No. 10 Miami (4-0) is the other.

The Broncos are back on the road this week. They travel to Albuquerque to face New Mexico, who beat Boise State on The Blue, 31-24, in 2015.
