The Arizona State Sun Devils dropped seven spots in the most recent AP poll after their road loss to Utah on Saturday.

ASU slipped from No. 17 to No. 24 in the poll, which was released Sunday.

The Sun Devils had their worst offensive performance of the season against the Utes, managing just three points and 136 yards of total offense.

Utah didn’t receive much love despite their win over the Sun Devils.

The Utes jumped just one spot in the poll, from No. 13 to No. 12.

Oregon, which picked up a big win over Washington remain undefeated in Pac-12 play, was the only other conference team to be ranked.

The Ducks were the conference’s highest-ranked team at No. 11.

Washington and USC, which blew out Arizona on Saturday, received votes in the poll.

Alabama and LSU remained the top two teams in the nation, respectively.

Ohio State jumped Clemson for No. 3, while previously unbeaten Wisconsin fell out of the top 10 to No. 13 after its loss to Illinois.
