BSPN: Week 5 Power Rankings

Reminder this is a “Power Ranking.” It means different things to different people. Some view it as the best team, some view it as hottest team at the moment. At the end of the year, the team that wins the conference may not be No. 1 in our rankings. We had 11 voters this week.

Boring one this week. We only had UC Davis blowing out Cal Poly to go off of. Yet with two less voters this week there is some movement in the poll still of teams

This week [Last week] Team – Point total (First Place Votes)

1. [1] Weber State Wildcats – 88 (11)

Did not play. Now have 67 of the 68 first place votes this year. I will own up to the fact that I messed up the sweep. I gave Idaho a first place hot vote after some tubs at the Club Saturday night week one. My bad, I’ll own it.

2.[T2] UC Davis Aggies – 77

Big win 73-24 in 46th Battle For The Golden Horseshoe.

True junior quarterback Hunter Rodrigues bounced back from his performance against Weber State. He completed 82.6% of his passes and accounting for 4 TDs to just 1 turnover. He played so well, he didn’t even finish the game.

The other half of the deadly duo that is UC Davis’ offense, Junior RB Ulonzo Gilliam Jr had another 100+ yard performance also 1 rushing and 1 receiving touchdown. Watch out as Gilliam Jr could very well be a Walter Payton Finalist for this spring.

3.[T2] Eastern Washington Eagles – 63 81

Did not play. However, apparently UC Davis did enough last week vs Cal Poly to break the tie, and solidly themselves at the 2 spot and Eastern to the 3.

4.[4] Idaho Vandals – 57

Did not play. Rumors out of Moscow is most the team had the big C. After 2 weeks off they should have majority of the team back and healthy for a four game stretch mostly on the road to close the season.

5.[5] Idaho State Bengals- 42

Did not play. Finish the year vs the top half, mostly on the road, @ (#2) UC Davis, vs (#4) Idaho, @ (#1) Weber State. YIKES!

6.[7] Northern Arizona Lumberjacks – 29

Did not play. Moved up one spot by securing one measly point over Southern Utah.

7.[6] Southern Utah Thunderbirds – 28

Did not play. Apparently, the shock and awe of the Cal Poly stopping a week prior wore off the top of our votes minds, as they fall one spot by one point. Head-to-head seems to have come to forefront.

8.[8] Cal Poly Mustangs – 12

How the mighty have fallen. This team flirted between 4-6 for most of our voters the first two weeks of the season. Well unfortunately for Stang fans, the season started… They received all but one last place vote this week. Guess who? Now we have come full circle.

See you all next week!
