Okay, if only because they still have a shot at the Pac-12 championship game, thus are still alive to play for the Rose Bowl.
But still, it's the end of November and the Utes are under consideration for a BCS bowl game. I like the sound of that!
Utah could wrap up the Pac-12 South with a win over Colorado Friday and losses by both ASU (to Cal) and UCLA (to USC).
Two of those three seem likely at this point. The third, a Sun Devils' loss at home to the inconsistent Golden Bears, will prove to be the most difficult game to predict.
We'll pretty much know where Utah stands Friday night, as the ASU-Cal game kicks off after Utah's done hosting Colorado.
