AP Poll: Arizona State Drops Out of Top 25

After losing in terrible fashion to Utah, ASU is no longer ranked.

After a night like that, being ranked was out of the question for the Arizona State Sun Devils. 

Following a 21-7 lead at halftime, Arizona State allowed 28 unanswered points to Utah in the second half of their 35-21 loss to the Utes. The Sun Devils now fall to 5-2 on the season, with both losses coming in the state of Utah. 

Arizona State also fell out of the Associated Press' new rankings, released early Sunday. Previously ranked at No. 18, the Sun Devils crashed down to unranked territory following their loss. 

Arizona State was just one of seven ranked teams to lose on Saturday, as the following schools fell to defeat over the weekend:

No. 2 Iowa 

No. 11 Kentucky 

No. 17 Arkansas
