Utes 28th in preseason Coaches' Poll

New, 19 comments

The USA Today Coaches' Poll is out and Utah is ranked 28th, just outside the top-25. 

Oregon and Stanford are the only two Pac-12 teams ranked, though it should be pointed out that SC is ineligible to receive votes in this poll due to their sanctions. 

Arizona State is 26th, while Arizona is 32nd and BYU 43rd.

This marks the first time since the start of the '08 season that Utah is not ranked in the preseason Coaches' Poll. They were ranked 28th then too.
