BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A bounce-back win and losses by three more highly ranked teams have given Boise State renewed hope that a BCS bowl game could be in its future after all.

One week after a stunning home loss to TCU, the No. 7 Broncos rebounded Saturday with a 52-35 victory over San Diego State.

Boise State also shot up three spots in The Associated Press poll thanks to losses by Oregon, Oklahoma and Clemson -- all of which now have two losses.

With two games remaining, the Broncos appear to still be in the mix for an at-large BCS bid.

But that's not something coach Chris Petersen cares to talk about.
