SALT LAKE CITY – After being picked No. 14 in last week’s preseason Coaches’ Poll, Utah football is also picked in the top half of the AP Preseason Top-25 Poll.
The voters placed the Utes No. 14 just ahead of a big 2023 college football season for a team on a roll.
Utah has been crowned the Pac-12 Champion the past two seasons and has a great opportunity to make it three in the final season with the “Conference of Champions”.

Where The Pac-12 Placed In The AP Top-25 Poll
Much like last week’s Coaches Poll, Utah is joined by fellow conference-mates USC, Washington, Oregon, and Oregon State in the AP Top 25 Poll.
The Pac-12 has been considered one of the toughest conferences on paper ahead of the 2023 football season and the voters proved it with their rankings.
USC is the highest ranked Pac-12 team coming in at No. 6 with Washington on their heels at No. 10. Oregon comes next at No. 15 while Oregon State brings up the rear at No. 18.
The Trojans, Huskies, Ducks, and Utes all boast returning 3000 yard passing quarterbacks from a season ago with Oregon State having the potential to bring a new one into the mix for 2023.
