New, 12 comments

The Utes moved up a couple spots in the final CFP poll of the regular season.

The Utes jumped two spots this week in the College Football Playoff top-25 poll to #23. The Utes have been ranked every week in the CFP poll, being as high as 17th.

The Utes beat Colorado this past weekend to go finish the regular season with an 8-4 record, and 5-4 in the Pac-12, the programs best finish since joining the league in 2011. Utah finished the season basically an Arizona win away from winning the Pac-12 South.

Utah is joined by five other Pac-12 members: Oregon, Arizona, UCLA, Arizona State and USC.

Here are the full rankings:
