Even without playing the Utes move up in the polls.

Utah wrapped up their season a week ago, and are awaiting the expected Vegas Bowl invite. With all the championship game action now behind us, and bowl season upon us, the final rankings until after the season were released today. Utah moved up in all the polls, but most importantly the CFP poll, they moved up to 22nd from 23rd.

The Utes are the 2nd highest ranked 4-loss team, just behind Auburn who is 19th.

Utah is joined by Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA and USC in these final rankings. That means every team, outside of Colorado, are ranked. Talk about one heck of a division to call home. It's a bit surprising that after the dismantling that Arizona took from Oregon they only dropped three spots, but that once again proves the respect for the Pac-12 conference from the committee.

Here are the final rankings until after the bowl season:
