Utah enjoyed its most successful Pac-12 season yet in 2015. Kyle Whittingham's Utes finished with 10 wins for the first time since 2010 and came within a whisker of claiming an outright Pac-12 South title. Utah capped it all off with a Las Vegas Bowl victory over BYU and a second consecutive finish in the final Top 25 poll.
Can the Utes take a step forward and finally finish atop the Pac-12 South in 2016? The schedule is favorable for a run, if Utah can successfully replace several graduated stars on both sides of the ball from last season.
