Utes return to the AP Poll, move up in Coaches

NCAA Football: Oregon at Utah Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

After a must win over Oregon yesterday, the Utes are getting back on the national radar by jumping back into the AP Poll (21) and moving up in the Coaches Poll (19). I’d expect the Utes to jump back into the CFP poll on Tuesday as well, where they were 15 just a few weeks ago. Jason Shelley and Armand Shyne, behind a great effort by the offensive line, stabilized a ship that had took on some water with injuries and adversity.

Interestingly, Utah State remains in the same spot in the AP Poll, but moved up a bit in the Coaches. The question for the Aggies is will they jump into the CFP, after being a no show for the first two.

As for the Pac-12, Wazzu moved up in the AP, and Washington is rebounding as well. ASU is on the outside look in for both, as is Stanford.

Here’s the rankings for both:
