The top of the list remains the same as the Boise State Broncos are still our unanimous No. 1, but there has been a shakeup in the rest of our Underdog Top 10.

Underdog Top 10 - Week 7

Rank (LW) Team Points Conference
Rank (LW) Team Points Conference
1 (1) Boise State 110 (11) Mountain West
2 (3) SMU 95 American
3 (2) Cincinnati 91 American
4 (7) Appalachian State 66 Sun Belt
5 (6) Tulane 57 American
6 (NR) Temple 50 American
7 (5) UCF 48 American
8 (4) Memphis 34 American
9 (NR) San Diego State 21 Mountain West
10 (8) Hawaii 10 Mountain West
Receiving votes: Utah State (9), Air Force (6), Toledo (3), Navy (3), UAB (1), Louisiana Tech (1)

*Numbers in parentheses are the number of first place votes*

Biggest jump: Temple Owls

Largest fall: Memphis Tigers

It is an expected shift in the rankings after the Owls knocked off the previously undefeated Tigers last weekend. Temple only received two votes last week, but skyrocketed up the rankings this week. Meanwhile, the Tigers fell from fourth to eighth.

SMU and Cincinnati flipped spots, and like last week, the margin between the two schools is less than 10 votes. They have clearly separated themselves from the rest of the pack according to our panel of voters.

Outside of the Appalachian St. Mountaineers, our entire top 10 features teams from the American Athletic and Mountain West Conferences. UAB and Louisiana Tech each received one vote for Conference USA. Toledo earned the only votes for the Mid-American Conference.
