UH moves up in BCS, but gets no love in polls
Hawaii moved up a spot to 15th in the BCS standings yesterday, despite falling in all three major college football polls.
UH improved to 10-0 with a 28-26 victory at Nevada on Friday and is one of only two unbeaten teams left in Division I. The Warriors are No. 13 in the coaches and the Harris polls, which are used in the BCS rankings to determine which teams get into major bowl games. Last week UH was No. 12 in the coaches and No. 11 in the Harris polls.
Computer rankings are also used in the BCS rankings. That is where UH made up enough ground to move up. If UH beats Boise State for the WAC championship on Friday and Washington the following week, the Warriors will earn a spot in one of the top five bowl games if they finish the season in the top 12 of the BCS standings.
Hawaii also fell one spot to 14th in the Associated Press poll yesterday.
