SALT LAKE CITY – Utah football didn’t move in the week two College Football Playoff rankings after a solid performance against ASU over the weekend.
Utah made a significant move up the ranking setting up what will be a big game in Seattle this weekend against the Washington Huskies.
Utah has only missed being ranked in the College Football Playoff rankings once back in 2017 when they finished the year 7-6. The CFP rankings were initiated in 2014 in lieu of the old Bowl Championship Series (BCS).

Where Does Utah Rank In Week Two Of The CFP?
In the first playoff rankings of the 2023 College football season, the Utah Utes came in at No. 18.
The Utes feel like they are back on track after suffering their own trouncing by Oregon the week before. All week the message in-house for Utah was to not let the Ducks beat them twice, mission accomplished, 55-6, against an ASU team that has had other good teams on the ropes in 2023.
It’s no secret the Utes are very beat up and have had to be creative to reach their now 7-2 record for the 2023 season. It’s been an impressive feat that isn’t quite finished as Utah has a huge opportunity ahead of them on the road this week against Washington who came in ranked No. 5 in the latest CFP.

The Utes are joined by four other conference-mates in the latest College Football Playoff rankings.
USC, UCLA, Washington, and Oregon will all be making their way to the Big Ten in 2024, while Utah will join Arizona, ASU and Colorado in the Big 12. Oregon State and Washington State are currently stuck in no-man’s land having launched a lawsuit against the conference in regard to the abrupt ending of the Pac-12.
