Utes ranked 28th in USA Today Poll

Actually higher than I expected. The Coaches Poll was released today and the Utes come in at 28th, just outside the top-25. They're behind Alabama and South Carolina, with Michigan coming in at 24th. Meaning a win at Michigan would undoubtedly  push them into the top-25.

2. USC

3. Ohio State

4. Oklahoma

5. Florida
