Utah Ranked in the Top 20 in Both Polls

NCAA Football: Utah at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The Utah Utes (4-0, 1-0 Pac-12) have moved into the top 20 in both major polls after beating Arizona on the road Friday night 30-24. The Utes rank No. 20 in the AP Poll, the most respected human poll prior to the release of the College Football Playoff ranking. The Utes rank No. 19 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Utah moved up three spots from last week in the AP Poll and two spots in the USA Today Coaches Poll. The Utes will be on a bye this week. There are three games between ranked foes in week five: No. 5 USC at No. 16 Washington State on Friday, No. 24 Mississippi State at No. 13 Auburn (why Auburn is No. 13 is beyond me, they do not have any impressive wins and were dominated physically by Clemson), and No. 2 Clemson at No. 12 Virginia Tech. Utah will next play Stanford on Oct. 7.
