At least eight voters of the 60 Associated Press poll voted Oregon ahead of Boise State in their ballot this week. Boise State defeated Oregon 19-8 in the season opener at Bronco Stadium.
All of the below results come from the Pollspeak, which tracks the votes of AP football voters.
The eight who have Oregon ahead of Boise State:
• Craig James of ESPN has Oregon No. 4 and Boise State No. 11.
• Kirk Bohls of the Austin (Texas) American Statesman has Oregon No. 4 and Boise State No. 9.
• Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News has Oregon No. 2 and Boise State No. 7.
• Angelique Chengelis of The Detroit News has Oregon No. 4 and Boise State No. 7.
• Brent McMurphy of AOL FanHouse has Oregon No. 5 and Boise State No. 7.
• Pete DiPrimio of the Fort Wayne (Indiana) News-Sentinel has Oregon No. 4 and Boise State No. 6.
• Eric Schmoldt of the Casper (Wyoming) Star-Tribune has Oregon No. 6 and Boise State No. 7.
• Dave Matter of the Columbia (Missouri) Daily Tribune has Oregon No. 7 and Boise State No. 8.
The real number is likely higher because the ballot of ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit was not available. Herbstreit said during Saturday night’s Oregon-USC telecast that he had Oregon at No. 4 and Boise State was not in his top 5.
By comparison, not one voter has Penn State ahead of Iowa. Penn State's lone loss this season was to undefeated Iowa.
At least the writers’ votes are public. The coaches do not release their individual ballots each week. Some Harris poll voters make their ballots public.
