In his just-released Top 10 following the first week of college football, The Athletic’s Stewart Mandel slotted the Utah Utes at No. 10 in the country.

Mandel writes:

“My faith in the Utes this year was due in large part to RB Zack Moss and QB Tyler Huntley returning from late-season injuries. Last Thursday against BYU, Moss carried 29 times for 187 yards, Huntley made plays with his feet and his arm and the Utes’ defense suffocated rival BYU in a 30-12 rout. Utah ran for 262 yards.”
