Soon after LSU beat Clemson on Monday night to win the College Football Playoff National Championship, the final Associated Press Top 25 poll of the season was released.

Following two blowout losses to close the season, the Utah Utes were ranked No. 16 in the final poll. The ranking came after they got as high as No. 5 in the poll this season.

Perhaps fittingly, the Oregon Ducks, who beat the Utah 37-15 in the Pac-12 Championship Game and then won the Rose Bowl, is ranked No. 5 in the final poll. Those two squads are the only ones from the Pac-12 to be in the Top 25. Washington, USC, Arizona State and Cal received votes.

The Texas Longhorns, who trounced the Utes 38-10 to close the season, cracked the poll at No. 25.

After LSU and Clemson, Ohio State finished No. 3, followed by Georgia, then Oregon, Florida at No. 6 and College Football Playoff participant Oklahoma at No. 7.

Alabama, Penn State and Minnesota round out the Top10.
