After moving up two spots on a bye week, Utah fell back one spot to No. 13 in the latest ESPN Power Rankings even though they had a dominant win over Arizona State.
Talking about the Utes, they wrote, “Utah exploded on Arizona State, turning a close game into a Thursday night blowout with big plays on offense and defense. The Utes continue to be in the thick of the Pac-12 South division hunt. And if they win out — over Oregon on Saturday and at Colorado in a potentially huge season finale — they could work their way into the CFP discussion with a win in the Pac-12 title game.”
