Utah football ranked 23rd in coaches poll, top unranked team in AP poll


The Utah Utes have moved up two spots in the latest USA Today coaches poll and are the top vote-getter among non-ranked teams in the AP poll.

Following their 37-16 win over North Dakota in the season-opener last Thursday at Rice-Eccles Stadium, the Utes rose from No. 25 to No. 23 in the coaches poll. They received 96 votes in the AP poll. The 25th-ranked team, Tennessee, received 104.

USC, Washington, Stanford and Washington State are Pac-12 teams ranked above Utah in both polls.

LSU, which beat BYU 27-0 last Saturday, is No. 12 in both polls. The Tigers were there in last week’s coaches poll, and jumped up one spot from No. 13 in the AP poll.

Alabama remained atop both polls, while Ohio State stayed No. 2. Clemson and Penn State are Nos. 3 and 4 in both polls, while the Trojans are No. 5 in the coaches poll and No. 6 in the AP poll. They alternate with Oklahoma in the two polls.
