SDSU has now been ranked in three straight AP polls for the first time since the final three polls of the 1977 campaign.

San Diego State has 373 points in the AP poll, up from 365 last week. The Aztecs are ahead of No. 20 Utah (358 points), No. 21 Florida and Notre Dame (both with 349), No. 23 West Virginia (221), No. 24 North Carolina State (149) and No. 25 Central Florida (120), and just behind South Florida (440) for 18th in the poll.

This is the 21st time that SDSU has been ranked in the AP poll since becoming a Division I program in 1969 and the seventh time over the past two seasons (since Sept. 18, 2016).

San Diego State also remains 21st in the Amway Coaches Poll with 377 points, up from 315 points a week ago. The Aztecs are just behind No. 20 Florida (387 points), and ahead of No. 22 Notre Dame (244), No. 23 West Virginia (243), No. 24 North Carolina State (129) and No. 25 Central Florida (61).

SDSU is 5-0 for the first time since 1975 and for just the second time in the last 47 seasons.

San Diego State is coming off a 34-28 win over Northern Illinois on Saturday night, highlighted by a +4 turnover advantage (SDSU 0, NIU 4), a 96-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Juwan Washington, an 83-yard interception return by Tariq Thompson and two touchdowns passes by Christian Chapman.

The Aztecs, who have won seven consecutive games, are 13-2 in their last 15 contests and 26-3 in their last 29, also have wins this year over UC Davis (38-17), at Arizona State (30-20), against then No. 19/19 Stanford (20-17) and at Air Force (28-24). SDSU won all of its non-conference games in the same season for the first time since 1981.

San Diego State resumes Mountain West play Saturday night (7:45 p.m. PT) at UNLV on ESPN2.
