Is this the upset for 2015?

We've sort of become accustomed to the Arizona Wildcats pulling one major upset each year. But time is running out on that opportunity in 2015.

The Cats will have one last chance, and it's when a top-ten ranked Utah Utes team travels to Tucson for Senior Night on Saturday.

Utah is ranked 10th in this week's AP Poll. Here are the AP and Coaches' polls for this week:

AP Coaches
1 Clemson (31) Ohio State (34)
2 Ohio State (26) Clemson (21)
3 Alabama (2) Baylor (5)
4 Baylor (2) Alabama (3)
5 Oklahoma State Oklahoma State
6 Notre Dame Notre Dame
7 Stanford Stanford
8 Iowa Iowa
9 LSU LSU
10 Utah Florida
11 Florida Oklahoma
12 Oklahoma TCU
13 TCU Utah
14 Michigan State Michigan State
15 Michigan Michigan
16 Houston Houston
17 North Carolina North Carolina
18 UCLA Florida State (T-18)
19 Florida State UCLA (T-18)
20 Mississippi State Mississippi State
21 Temple Temple
22 Navy Wisconsin
23 Wisconsin Navy
24 Northwestern Northwestern
25 Memphis Memphis

Utah and UCLA remain the only Pac-12 South teams in the top-25, as USC is lurking just outside in both polls. Remember when this was supposed to be the nation's best division?

Also, 7th-ranked Stanford is the only Pac-12 North team, and had an opportunity to clinch the division this week, but Cal let them down. So the Cardinal will have to settle for next week to stake their claim on the Pac-12 Championship Game in their backyard.

We're all waiting for that defining game from Arizona this season. Hopefully they didn't spend all their energy on the near-upset of USC this weekend, and have some gas left in the tank to take down a Utah team they've owned the past three years.
