It's tournament time for the Runnin' Utes, as the Pac-12 Tournament tips off for them on Thursday night. The final polls from the regular season is out, and the Utes check in at No.12 in both the AP and Coaches Poll. The 24 win Utes are in the running for a very nice NCAA Tournament seed if they make a run or win the Pac-12 Tournament. Many people are thinking they could get a 3-seed, even as is.

Take a look at the full polls below:
