Utah surged two spots up the rankings and now are 7th in this week's USA Today's Coaches Poll.
It matches their ranking at the end of the 2008 regular season - with five weeks still left to play football.
The AP Poll has Utah 8th, behind Missouri.
Just to compare - Utah clocked in at 13th in 2008 when they were 7-0. So this year's team is out-polling those Utes by a considerable margin. The 2004 squad was 10th.
