Pacific Takes Top 25 12/2: Utah moves up to number five

The Utes climb into the Top 5.

NCAA Football: Colorado at Utah Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports
  1. LSU 12-0
  2. Ohio State 12-0
  3. Clemson 12-0
  4. Georgia 11-1
  5. Utah 11-1 - Don’t worry Ute fans. As long as LSU beats Georgia and Utah beats Oregon, I slide Utah up to the fourth spot. If Georgia wins and Ohio State and Clemson win, ugh, I’m not sure.
  6. Oklahoma 11-1
  7. Baylor 11-1
  8. Florida 10-2
  9. Auburn 9-3
  10. Alabama 10-2
  11. Wisconsin 10-2
  12. Penn State 10-2
  13. Oregon 10-2 - Getting to 10 wins was huge for the Ducks. They’ll climb towards the Top 5 if they can beat Utah in the Pac-12 Championship Game and win the Rose Bowl.
  14. Notre Dame 10-2
  15. Minnesota 10-2
  16. Memphis 11-1
  17. Michigan 9-3
  18. Iowa 9-3
  19. Virginia 9-3
  20. Boise State 11-1
  21. Appalachian State 11-1
  22. Cincinnati 10-2
  23. USC 8-4 - The Trojans closed strong after a rocky start and a tough game against Oregon. They’re setting up strong for next year no matter who the coach is as long as they don’t have a mass exodus via the NFL Draft and transfers.
  24. Kansas State 8-4
  25. Oklahoma State 8-4
