Utah football will start the 2012 season outside the top-25 - at least according to the USA Today Coaches' Poll, which was released this morning.

It isn't that big of a surprise to see Utah unranked, as they haven't been ranked in this poll since just after the 2010 season. Though they did receive votes - enough to put 'em at 32nd in the poll. USC is ranked 3rd, Oregon 5th and Stanford 18th.

Last year, the Utes started the season 28th in the poll.

The media poll will be released at a later date.

You can view the poll after the jump.
