BYU Football Improves to No. 11 in AP Poll, No. 10 in Coaches Poll

Casey Lundquist

BYU improved to 6-0 for the first time since 2008 with a dominant win against Texas State. BYU's 6-0 start has earned them a spot in the top-25 for seven consecutive weeks.

AP released the seventh in-season AP top 25 on Sunday. It's important to remember that some of the ranked teams haven't played yet and others have played only one game. Most notably, the Big Ten kicked off their season yesterday which caused some shuffling in the rankings.
