Utah finished the season ranked 18th in both the media and coaches' poll. It marks only the second time in school history Utah has had back-to-back top-25 finishes.
Texas, who gave Alabama a scare, finished second and Florida third in both polls. Which means the 14-0 Broncos failed to capture any national championship momentum and fell to fourth. They also received zero first place votes.
TCU was the highest Mountain West team, finishing 6th. BYU was ranked 12th in both polls.
Good season. Now can 2010 get here?
