Following the win over Michigan in week one, Utah football moved into the top 25 in both the AP Poll (No. 24) and the Amway Coaches Poll (No. 25). It seems that Associated Press voters and coaches around college football took notice of Utah's win over Michigan to start the season. Utah was effectively ranked No. 30 in the first AP Poll and Coaches Poll, so they moved up five spots in the Coaches Poll and six spots in the AP Poll following their victory over the Wolverines. Looking at the other teams in the Pac-12, Oregon checks in at No. 5 in the Coaches Poll and No. 7 in the AP Poll for the second week in a row. USC stayed at No. 10 in the Coaches Poll and No. 8 in the AP Poll. UCLA moved up one spot to No. 13 in the Coaches Poll and stayed at No. 13 in the AP Poll. Arizona moved up two spots to No. 20 in the Coaches Poll and stayed at No. 22 in the AP Poll. Arizona State and Stanford both fell out of each of the polls following their week one losses. Utah is only two points behind No. 24 Wisconsin in the Coaches Poll, who lost to No. 2 Alabama in week one. The Coaches Poll features nine teams from the SEC, and a record 10 teams in the AP Poll.
