BYU Receives Votes in Both Major Polls

BYU received votes in both the Coaches Poll and the AP Poll

On Tuesday, USA Today and AP released their top 25 rankings following the first week of college football. BYU didn't crack the top 25, but they did receive numerous votes in both polls. If the rankings extended beyond 25, BYU would have ranked #31 in the USA Today Coaches poll and #38 in the AP poll.

Three of BYU's 2021 opponents cracked the AP top 25: USC, Utah, and Arizona State. The Trojans came in at #14, the Utes came in at #21, and the Sun Devils came in at #23. 

BYU will host ranked Utah on Saturday. The following week, they will host Arizona State. Assuming the Sun Devils take care of business against UNLV this weekend, they will come into Lavell Edwards Stadium at 2-0 and ranked in the top 25.
