Around the Big Sky Conference, Sacramento State fell one spot to No. 8. The Hornets (1-0) did not play over the weekend. Weber State (2-0) moved up four spots to No. 12 after beating FBS Utah State of the Mountain West Conference 35-7. Eastern Washington — which lost to Oregon 70-14 — dropped two spots to No. 14.
