The morning after a loss is a tough one. Especially when it was a hard faught OT loss. As always with Sundays, the new AP and Coaches Polls are out, and even after a loss, Utah didn't drop very much. Last week Utah was No. 18 in both polls, this week Utah is 20th in the AP and 22nd in the Coaches. After losing on the road to a top 15 team, it's nice to see the Utes getting a little respect for that hard loss. Utah is joined still by Oregon, ASU, UCLA and Arizona in the polls. The Utes take on the Ducks next, who are #5 in both polls this week.
Of course, the important poll will be out Tuesday, when the CFP commitee releses their 2nd version of their top-25. It will be very interesting to see where they believe the Utes belong, after ranking them 17th last week.
Anyway, here are the AP and Coaches Polls for this week.
