Utah on cusp of College Football Playoff berth with No. 5 ranking
Dec 3, 2019
The Utes rise one important spot to No. 5 in the penultimate College Football Playoff rankings for 2019. Utah, which features the nation's top rushing defense (56.3 yards per game allowed) and a Heisman Trophy contender in quarterback Tyler Huntley, can make a major statement and earn the school's first CFP selection this Friday night against No. 13 Oregon in the Football Championship Game. Utah also finished 5-1 this season against bowl-eligible teams.
