Last week, the BYU football program was ranked 20th in the Associated Press Top 25 poll and just outside the Top 25 (26th) in the USA Today Amway Coaches Poll.

This week after the Cougars got trounced by the Washington Huskies 35-7 on Saturday, they are barely receiving any votes in either poll. They received just four in the coaches poll and only three in the AP poll.

Only three other teams received at least one vote in the coaches poll, and only five others did in the AP poll.

The Huskies moved up one spot to No. 10 both polls after beating BYU.

Meanwhile, the Utah Utes got no votes in either poll this week after getting nine in last week's AP poll and two in last week's coaches poll. The Utes fell to the Washington State Cougars 28-24 on Saturday.

Washington State is essentiall ranked 29th in the coaches poll this week and 32nd in the AP poll (the Cougars received 43 votes in the coaches poll and 14 in the AP poll).

Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State and Clemson make up the top four in that order in both polls.
