Spring football camp has wrapped up for both Utah and BYU, but that doesn’t mean the hype surrounding the two programs is quieting.

With both schools coming off a season where they won double-digit games and ranked in the nation’s top 20 at the end of the year, both the Utes and Cougars are getting recognized on a national front.

The latest comes from ESPN’s Heather Dinich, who identified seven schools as sleeper candidates to make the College Football Playoff this season — two from the Pac-12, one from each of the other Power Five conferences and one non-Power Five program. 

Both Utah and BYU made the short list.
