BYU Football Remains In Top 25 Polls After Postponed Weekend

PROVO, Utah – BYU football wasn’t in action this past weekend, but that didn’t matter as they kept their place in the latest Top 25 rankings.

The Cougars moved down in the Amway Coaches Poll from No. 22 to No. 23 in a poll that now featured programs from the Big Ten Conference. Big Ten football begins on October 24th.

In the Associated Press poll, BYU moved up from No. 21 to No. 18. It’s the highest ranking for BYU in the AP poll since 2014 when they rose to No. 18 after a 4-0 start.

Unlike the Coaches Poll, the AP Top 25 did not include programs from the Big Ten, allowing BYU to showcase themselves this Saturday against Troy in the country’s first game west of Texas this season.

BYU and the Top 25

This week’s appearance in the AP Top 25 is the 10th-week BYU has been ranked since the Cougars became an FBS Independent in 2011. It’s the fourth week under head coach Kalani Sitake that BYU has found themselves in the national rankings.
