After they both picked up wins in the state of Colorado on Saturday, the Utah State Aggies and Utah Utes moved around a bit in the polls because of the fashion in which they were victorious.
Thanks to a penalty on the last play of the game against the Colorado State Rams that negated a touchdown, Utah State escaped Fort Collins with a 29-24 victory. The close contest caused the Aggies to drop two spots in the Coaches Poll from last week's 13th spot, but they remained in the same slot in the AP Poll.
Utah, on the other hand, cruised past the Colorado Buffaloes, and moved up two spots in the Coaches Poll and three spots in the AP Poll. They were 19th and 21st in the respective polls last week.22 comments on this story
