SALT LAKE CITY – BYU jumped up several spots in the latest edition of the BIG-PAC Power Poll after beating Boise State last weekend.

The victory snapped a four-game losing streak for BYU and allowed the Cougars to end their long-running rivalry with Boise State on a high note. The Utes, meanwhile, maintained their position near the top of the poll.

The BIG-PAC Power Poll combines all teams from the BIG-12 and the PAC-12, and BYU, and is voted on by Jake Scott, Ben Anderson, and Sarah Houssian from 97.5 The KSL Sports Zone.
