Idaho coach Robb Akey was one of 11 coaches to vote Boise State No. 1 in the latest USA Today Coaches Poll, he confirmed in an interview with Jeff Caves of 1350 AM KTIK.
Boise State was ranked No. 2 in the coaches poll released Sunday.
Akey does a taped interview each Wednesday that runs during "Idaho Sports Talk with Caves and Prater" from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on KTIK. Listen here to Akey's short answer on voting Boise State No. 1.
Akey's full interview is scheduled to run at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday on KTIK.
Last week, Akey hinted that he did not vote Boise State No. 1. He called Boise State "one of the top teams in the country," but said I was "reading too much into that quote" when I asked if that meant he voted Boise State No. 1.
Akey said he does not want the coaches' weekly ballots to be made public, saying he didn't want to be forced to defend his ballot each week — even from Vandal fans who might object to him voting Boise State too high.
Boise State coach Chris Petersen said last week he did not vote the Broncos No. 1.
