Started the season unranked. Has played absolutely nobody the entire year, and is now ranked 10th in both polls.
Thats 6 spots ahead of an undefeated michigan state team that beat a top 10 team.
Do not understand.

Really not that shocking. They started the season ranked in the Coaches and right on the edge in the AP. They played a (at the time) 15th ranked Pitt team and won their first game. That bumped them up to 20th which is not unreasonable. Since then Iowa, Texas, Wisconsin, VT, USC, FSU, GT, Arkansas, Florida, and Penn St. have all lost. All those teams were ranked higher than Utah.

So again, not really that surprising.

Nah,I knew none of them had won one since 1970 or so, just not too familiar with my pre-1950 CFB.


Fixed for you

And my bad, last 7 years, huge difference. That game really doesn't feel 7 years old to me yet for whatever reason.
