Utes Ranked No. 24 in Preseason AP Poll

NCAA Football: Washington State at Utah Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

After falling outside of the Coaches Poll by just one spot last week, the Utes are in the preseason top 25 for the AP Poll, coming in at No. 24. Utah joins four other Pac-12 teams with Oregon (11), USC (15), Washington (20), and ASU (25). UCLA also picked up some votes.

At the top of the poll are Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, and OU. It’s almost like groundhog day up there, and I hope we see those teams knocked off at some point this season. Outside of Alabama, I think those other three may be vulnerable, but there’s a chance we have the same narrative through this season as we’ve seen over the last handful.

Here’s the full top 25:

  1. Alabama
  2. Oklahoma
  3. Clemson
  4. Ohio State
  5. Georgia
  6. Texas A&M
  7. Iowa State
  8. Cincinnati
  9. Notre Dame
  10. North Carolina
  11. Oregon
  12. Wisconsin
  13. Florida
  14. Miami
  15. USC
  16. LSU
  17. Indiana
  18. Iowa
  19. Penn State
  20. Washington
  21. Texas
  22. Coastal Carolina
  23. Lousiana-Lafayette
  24. Utah
  25. Arizona State

Receiving votes: Oklahoma State 107; Ole Miss 106; TCU 40; Liberty 36; Auburn 32; North Carolina State 14; Michigan 12; Northwestern 8; Boise State 7; Nevada 7; BYU 6; Ball State; Houston 5; Boston College 5; UCF 5; West Virginia 3; UAB 2; Army 2; UCLA 2.
