    TCU football is making its way up the USA Today and Associated Press poll after the 36-35 win against Boise State.

    The Frogs now stand at No. 19 after ranking No. 24 in last week's USA Today poll. TCU is back in the AP Top 25 where the team stands at No. 19. 

    Last week, TCU did not rank in the AP Top 25 but still received 56 votes.

    Boise State fell to No. 11 in the USA Today poll. Just last week the Broncos ranked among the top 5 (No. 5). The Broncos fell to No. 10 in the AP Top 25.

    The Bronco's loss was the first conference home loss since 1998 and first loss at home since 2007.

    TCU quarterback Casey Pachall has been named the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week after his five touchdowns and 473 yards passing during Saturday's game. Former Horned Frog quarterback Andy Dalton received the award in 2010.

    Pachall is now the highest ranked non junior or senior and stands at no. 6 in the nation for passing efficiency.
