The 2021 season concluded for the BYU Cougars and Utah Utes football teams last weekend with both teams getting victories, and on Tuesday evening it was revealed where they are slotted in the latest College Football Playoff rankings.
The Cougars jumped up one spot from No. 13 to No. 12, while the Utes rose two spots from No. 19 to No. 17.
BYU (10-2) has now been in the CFP rankings every week they’ve been released this season, while Utah (9-3) has been in the rankings all but one week.
The Cougars have won five consecutive games and secured back-to-back 10-win seasons for the first time since 2008-2009 with their victory over the USC Trojans last weekend.
The Utes have won eight of their last nine games and will face Oregon on Friday in Las Vegas for the Pac-12 championship and a chance to play in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.
Oregon is ranked No. 10 this week after being No. 11 last week.
Georgia remained ranked No. 1, but after that there was a little shakeup at the top as Michigan moved from No. 5 to No. 2 after beating then-No. 2 Ohio State last weekend.
Alabama and Cincinnati remained Nos. 3 and 4, respectively, while Oklahoma State moved from No. 7 to No. 5.
Notre Dame remained No. 6.
The final rankings of the season will be released on Sunday following the conclusion of a few final regular season games and a bevy of conference championship contests this weekend.
