The difference between the polls was that USC (ineligible for the Coaches’ Poll) was No. 6 and Stanford was No. 7 in AP. The top five were the same in both: Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Arkansas.

The Boise State football team has added a linebacker to its 2012 recruiting class — a last-minute addition who was supposed to play for Hawaii.

Tyler Gray (6-foot-3, 225 pounds), who signed with Hawaii in February but grayshirted during the fall semester, was scheduled to fly to Hawaii on Friday, his speed coach, John Spells, said. Boise State contacted Gray on Wednesday and — in part because Hawaii changed coaching staffs — Gray took the Broncos’ scholarship offer.
