Fresno State moves up to #16 in the AP Top 25 Poll

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Fresno State football team continues to climb in the college football polls.

On Sunday, the Bulldogs came in #16 in the AP Top 25 poll after previously being ranked #20. They also move up to #17 in the Coaches Poll after last week's #23.

The Bulldogs await the latest change in the College Football Playoff rankings which will be released Tuesday night. Fresno State was ranked #23 last week, but with teams ahead of them losing (Texas A&M, Texas, Iowa and Utah), the team is expected to move up.
