Utes ranked 24th in preseason Coaches Poll

I am actually a bit surprised they were ranked to start out the season. But I'll take it! For the first time in program history, the Utes will open consecutive seasons ranked in the top-25. 

Last year they were 18th to start the season (where they essentially finished). 

TCU is the only other Mountain West team ranked at 7th. Pitt is 15th. You can see the total poll after the jump...
