The Utes moved up one spot to No. 11 in the latest AP Top 25, released on Sunday.

Utah beat Oregon State on Saturday to move to 4-1 on the season. The defense once again dominated its opponent, turning the Beavers over four times in a 42-16 win. With Kentucky and Wake Forest both losing, the Utes slid up one spot in the media poll, though they were jumped by Ole Miss. The Rebels beat Kentucky 22-19 and moved up five spots to No. 9.

Still, Utah remains the highest-ranked one-loss team in the poll. Even as Florida has fallen out of the ranking, the Utes have held firm, viewed by pollsters as the best team with a blemish in the country. They’re right there, should a team or teams in the top 10 stumble.

Of course, Utah could move up again next week on its own merit. The Utes face UCLA (5-0) on Saturday in the Rose Bowl. After a a 40-32 win over Washington on Friday night, the Bruins moved into the Top 25 for the first time season, rising all the way to No. 18.

Utah will have a chance to pick up a signature win in Pasadena. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. PT on FOX.
