Utes move up two spots to No. 17 in the polls after beating Washington State

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Rain pours down as the Utah Utes host the Washington State Cougars, NCAA football at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City on Saturday Sept. 28, 2019.

Utah moved up two spots in the AP Top 25, becoming the Pac-12's No. 3 football team in the rankings Sunday after the Utes beat Washington State and California lost to Arizona State.

The Utes (4-1) made a similar move in the Coaches Poll following a 38-13 victory Saturday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Pac-12 North members Oregon (No. 13) and Washington (No. 15) remained ahead of Utah in AP poll, with the Ducks having been idle and the Huskies defeating USC 28-14 in Seattle.

Arizona State (No. 20) displaced formerly No. 15 Cal in the AP Top 25 with a 24-17 victory Friday in Berkeley, Calif. The Sun Devils will visit Utah on Oct. 19. ASU, like Utah, has an open date next weekend before hosting Washington State on Oct. 12.
