It could  be an old TL that dropped and possibly lowering your AAoA. Possibly a bogus collection surfaced or a dispute came back verified. It's really hard to say without comparing your reports.

^ This.  You really need to look at your reports.  It could be any number of things and even a combination of things.

+1 You need to take a look at your credit reports. If you're not subscribed to a service that lets you do it, get your free ones from annualcreditreport.com and see what's on them.

Do you PIF before the statement cuts or after the statement? Because if its after the statement it's still going to affect your util as what the statement balance is what's reported to the bureaus
