Utah coach Kyle Whittingham says he never pays attention to rankings, except, apparently, when it is the ranking of the Utes' opponent.
Whittingham said following Monday's practice that he thought the No. 12 Bruins should be ranked even higher, then reeled off a bunch of reasons why.
"They are a very good football team, particularly on offense," he said. "They have punted three times in three games, that is unheard of, so they are moving the football. They are taking care of it, they are putting points on the board, they are running it, throwing it, doing everything right. Defensively they are playing hard, they have good athletes on defense and a nice scheme so this is an outstanding team."<
