The Associated Press and USA Today Coaches polls were released this morning, and after a weekend where they all won, Louisville, Rutgers, and Cincinnati all moved up slightly in both.

The Associated Press and USA Today coaches polls following the seventh week of the college football season were released this morning. After the Big East's three unbeaten and ranked teams all won, all three moved up in both polls. Louisville went on the road and beat Pittsburgh 45-35 to move to 6-0. As a result, the Cardinals moved up to to #14 in the Coaches Poll and #16 in the AP Poll. Rutgers was able to grind out another Big East win at home against Syracuse to also improve to 6-0. The Scarlet Knights moved up to #17 in the Coaches Poll and #19 in the AP Poll. Late last night, Cincinnati dominated FCS opponent Fordham to improve to 5-0. The Bearcats moved up to #18 in the Coaches Poll but stayed at #21 in the AP Poll. If both avoid upsets, the Louisville-Cincinnati game in two weeks should be a matchup of top 20 teams with a shot at moving way up and getting a death grip on the top of the Big East on the line.

In terms of future members, Boise State checked in at #22 in the Coaches Poll and #24 in the AP Poll. The Broncos are hoping to work the system to their advantage this year (after being royally screwed the previous two). The Broncos need only finish ranked in the top 16 and be ranked ahead of a BCS conference champion to automatically earn a bid. It will be interesting to see if they're purposefully held down on ballots even if they run the table to avoid their receiving a BCS bid. You can view the Coaches Poll here and the AP Poll here.
