Boise State falls in AP poll despite win over Hawaii

NEW YORK (AP) - TCU's impressive victory not only lifted the Horned Frogs to No. 3 in The Associated Press poll, it caused Auburn to move up behind top-ranked Oregon and Boise State to fall two spots to No. 4.

The Horned Frogs won 47-7 at Utah on Saturday in a matchup of unbeaten Mountain West Conference teams. With that thoroughly dominant performance, TCU drew so much support away from Boise State, it caused movement in the top four for the first time in three weeks.

Oregon received 49 first-place votes and 1,484 points, only three points less than last week. Auburn received the exact amount of first-place votes (two) and points as last week.

TCU received two first-place votes, same as last week, but jumped 41 points to 1,391. Boise State kept its seven first-place votes, but dropped 37 points to 1,366. The drop comes a day after the Broncos defeated Hawaii, 42-7, in Boise.
