      There is a football ranking system run by a U Memphis math professor named DP Dwiggins who puts Utah at #7.  His site is called DPDsdogs.com

      His methodology is here:

      One thing I note about his method is that there are 2 factors and each has a time-based weighting, so it is weighting recent performance high and more distant results less.  Since 2 of 3 of the Utes’ losses were early in the season, that probably helps a lot.   Jeff Sagarin has a separate scoring/ranking for “Recent Performance”.   Utes look good there, too.  Sagarin has Utes #10 in his “Overall” rankings and #7 in the Recent Performance.
