Utah drops in latest AP Top 25 poll after losing to Oregon at home
Utah moved down to No. 18 in the latest AP Top 25, released on Sunday.
The Utes (6-2, 3-2 Pac-12) dropped five spots from their previous ranking after a 35-6 loss to Oregon at home in Week 9. The loss snapped a streak of 18 consecutive home wins for the Utes, who were hoping to continue a quest toward a three-peat in the Pac-12.
With a second conference loss now on the ledger, those dreams are looking much less likely. Utah still has a game against Washington on the schedule, but it’ll need help now.
The Utes will host Arizona State in Week 10 (11 a.m. PT, Pac-12 Network) looking to get back in the win column.
Utah is joined by No. 5 Washington, No. 6 Oregon, No. 16 Oregon State, No. 20 UCLA, and No. 24 USC in the latest poll.
