College football rankings: Arizona picks up Coaches poll vote, Utah class of the Pac-12

No two loss teams are ranked

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Six weeks into the college football season, and the latest rankings don't have a single two-loss team in them.

Here's a look at how everything shook out after a pretty strange weekend across the country:

AP Coaches Massey
1 Ohio State (27) Ohio State (47) TCU
2 Baylor (13) Baylor (8) Florida
3 TCU (3) TCU (5) Utah
4 Utah (16) Michigan State (1) Clemson
5 Clemson (1) LSU (1) Michigan
6 LSU Clemson Ohio State
7 Michigan State Utah (1) Texas A&M
8 Florida State Florida State Baylor
9 Texas A&M (1) Alabama Alabama
10 Alabama Texas A&M Notre Dame
11 Florida Florida LSU
12 Michigan Ole Miss Florida State
13 Ole Miss Notre Dame Oklahoma State
14 Notre Dame Michigan Stanford
15 Stanford Oklahoma State Iowa
16 Oklahoma State Stanford Northwestern
17 Iowa Iowa Oklahoma State
18 UCLA UCLA Ole Miss
19 Oklahoma State Oklahoma UCLA
20 Northwestern Boise State Boise State
21 Boise State Northwestern Michigan State
22 Toledo Memphis California
23 California California Toledo
24 Houston Duke Temple
25 Duke Toledo USC

The Arizona Wildcats were completely shut out of the AP Poll, but did receive a single vote in the coaches poll. This is not great though, since Texas, who is 2-4, got four votes in that poll.

The Utah Utes are the last undefeated team in the Pac-12 after taking down Cal, and are now the highest-ranked team in the conference by far. Stanford is sitting right around 15th, with UCLA in 18th and Cal at 23rd.

The Pac-12 is going to eat itself alive, which is really unfortunate. Utah will need to get through ASU and USC in the next two weeks to set themselves up for success and be in the driver's seat for the Pac-12 South crown. The Pac-12 North is just bonkers.

For Arizona to move up, a couple more dominating wins against the lower-tier of the Pac-12 are required over the next couple of weeks. Games at Colorado and then at home against Washington State are ones that need to be won in a similar fashion to the Oregon State victory.

It's not all doom and gloom anymore though!
