If you’re like me, you’re just starting to come out of your hole of depression from the heartbreaking loss this past Saturday. Ok, I’m still in the hole, but I can at least see a little light at the end of the tunnel. That was aided a little bit with the latest College Football Playoff rankings that came out on Tuesday night, which had Utah slotted in at No. 22, a 10 spot drop from last week, which is basically in line with the other polls this week.

The Utes are one of six teams in the poll from the Pac-12, joining Washington, Colorado, USC, Washington State and Stanford.
