Record: 10-3, 6-2 to finish third in MWC

Final Coaches’/AP poll ranks: 18/18

Postseason: Defeated California, 37-27, in Poinsettia Bowl

A third-place team cracking the Top 15? The MWC simply was loaded in ’09 with three teams (TCU, BYU, Utah) finishing among the final 18 in both polls and Air Force receiving votes. As a a result, the Utes played a rugged schedule and their losses came at Oregon (31-24), at TCU (55-28) and at home versus rival BYU (26-23 in OT).
