SALT LAKE CITY- We’re getting to the downward stretch of the 2022 college football season and Utah Football continues to what they need to but fell a spot in the latest AP Top 25 Poll. The Utes went from No. 12 to No. 13 after putting on a dominating performance against Arizona Saturday night.

Despite some injuries and needing to rest guys, Utah has continues to show they have depth to get through it and can use some creativity to continue winning in convincing fashion.

Up next, the Utes will turn their attention to Senior Night and hosting the Stanford Cardinal in an 8 p.m. MT kickoff at Rice-Eccles Stadium. It will be the last home game for Utah as they finish out the rest of their schedule on the road.

November 19 Looms Large For Pac-12

The top four Pac-12 teams in the AP are in a heated battle to determine who makes the trip to Las Vegas in December to be crowned champion.  November 19 looms large for the Conference of Champions when No. 13 Utah visits No. 6 Oregon and No. 8 USC goes to No. 9 UCLA.

Outside of the top four Pac-12 teams floating in or around the AP Top 10, the conference has been enjoying a particularly good year of football with Washington creeping into the AP Top 25 at No. 24. The Pac-12 currently has six teams who qualify for bowl games (the most of any conference in FBS) with Washington State needing one more win to secure bowl eligibility.
