BYU football finishes 2011 ranked in Coaches Poll

With the conclusion of the BCS championship comes the final polls for the 2011 season, and the Cougars snuck in. On the Armed Forces Bowl win, and courtesy of Penn State's bowl loss, BYU finishes 25th in the Coaches Poll. The AP poll places BYU at 26th, or just outside the rankings. The difference? AP voters can vote on under-probation USC, while coaches were not allowed to do so. Full rankings below the jump.
