Ball State moves up in polls

Despite a bye week, Ball State moved up in the polls and also was part of the first BCS poll of the year.

The 7-0 Ball State Cardinals moved up to 20th in the most recent Associated Press Top 25 football poll just seven votes behind 19th ranked Kansas.

The Cardinals also moved up in the USA Today coaches poll, a poll they just moved into last week, where they were ranked 22nd, just behind 6-1 Georgia Tech.

The highlight of the week though, came with the release of the first Bowl Championship Series (BCS) poll of the season. The Cardinals were highlighted at #20 in the BCS, sandwiched between a pair of non-BCS brethern in 7-0 Tulsa and 6-1 BYU.
