Did Florida coach Urban Meyer sell the secret to beating the Alabama Crimson Tide to Utah?
Utah, Meyer's former team, defeated Alabama 31-17 on Friday night in the Sugar Bowl. For those keeping score at home, Florida beat Alabama by 11 points in the SEC championship game while Utah trounced coach Nick Saban's Crimson Tide by 14.
"I know where I'm voting us. I'm voting us No.1 End of story," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham told reporters in New Orleans on Friday night. "I don't know why they wouldn't deserve that consideration. Somebody has to explain to me why they wouldn't. There is only one undefeated team in the United States of America right now in Division I football, and it's these guys right here."
Quite the eye opener in the Superdome, no? Where do you think sportswriters should vote Utah in the final AP poll? I'm thinking No.4 if Texas defeats Ohio State. If the Buckeyes defeat the Longhorns, I'd vote Utah No.3 behind No.2 USC and the winner of the BCS national championship game. Thoughts?
