SALT LAKE CITY – Utah football dropped a few spots in the latest College Football Playoff rankings after a tough loss on the road to Washington over the weekend.
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).

Despite no longer being in the Pac-12 Title Game hunt, the Utes have a great opportunity to finish their 2023 campaign strong and send a message to their new conference in 2024 that they will be ready to compete. That effort will start this week as the Utes travel to Tucson to take on an Arizona Wildcats team that has been on a steady incline the pat three seasons under head coach Jedd Fisch.
It’s no secret the Utes are very beat up and have had to be creative to reach their now 7-3 record for the 2023 season. It’s been an impressive feat, but they still have two games left in the regular season they need to finish strong in to jockey for bowl game positioning.
