Utah's 54-10 win from last year is valid, but so are the overall results and final rankings, which trump any single game accomplishment. U want to trumpet Utah's win over BYU, but ignore all of Utah's mediocre performances, including Utah's implosion versus Colorado.

You can't ignore the rest of the season simply because it detracts from your only significant accomplishment.

bottom line:

BYU (10-3), #25/#26, ZERO losses to teams not ranked in the Top 40
#17 Texas
#20 TCU
#39 Utah

Utah (8-5), unranked, FOUR losses to teams not ranked in the Top 40
#12 Southern California
#41 Arizona State
#44 Washington
#64 Arizona
#107 Colorado
