Week 4 Pac-12 Picks

Week 4 Pac-12 Picks

The Utah Utes are off this week, as are the UCLA Bruins, California Golden Bears, and Colorado Buffaloes. Every team is playing a conference opponent this week, so we only have four games on the slate. Due to a computer error, the article has posted on Saturday, but all of the picks were made prior to the Washington State Cougars at USC Trojans game last night (as evidenced by the fact that Shane and I both missed on our pick for that game). Outside of Hunter (who went 9-2), we all struggled last week with our Pac-12 picks. AJ still leads the way in the standings. There will be little room...

National Games to Watch: Week 4

The Utes are off on a much-needed bye week after enduring their first loss of the season at the hands of the Washington Huskies. This gives Utah fans a chance to catch-up on some national teams that they may have otherwise missed out on. Here are three games to keep an eye on while the Utes rest up. Northern Illinois vs Florida State Saturday 1:30 PM MT – ESPNU ​The Willie Taggart era is off to a rough start down in Tallahassee. With their lone win coming against Samford (in what was a tight game until the closing minutes), the Florida State offense has failed to find any rhythm. The...

Week 4 Friday and Saturday College Football TV Schedule

Week 4 Friday and Saturday College Football TV Schedule

The Utes aren’t playing this week, so it’s a stress free weekend of college football, where we can all just kick back and watch a ton of football. There’s not a lot of interesting games this weekend, at least among ranked teams. Alabama takes on Texas A&M, but that will probably end up being a blow out. TCU does take on Texas, which could be an interesting game, but I have a hunch that the Frogs could run away from the Longhorns this weekend. Most of the action to watch out for is in the Pac-12. How does USC respond against Washington State? The primetime game is Oregon and Stanford,...

Red All Over: Utes will spend the weekend ranked No. 1 in three defensive categories

Weber State is turning out to be a very good FCS team, so Utah's defensive performance in the season opener should not be completely devalued by the level of competition.

What we learned in week 3

What we learned in week 3

The Utah Utes (2-1) fell to the Washington Huskies (2-1) on Saturday night. If you watched, then you know that there was more bad than good. The offense needs an identity Utah’s offense has not lived up to the hype. Under the leadership of four starting returners, the Utes are not scoring and they’ve turned the ball over too many times. Utah beat Northern Illinois 17-6. The Utes scored one touchdown, one field goal and scored off of an interception (the following kick was good which brought the score to 17). In the game against Washington, Utah’s only score came off of a 4-yard run...

The biggest story of Pac-12 football so far is the so-so South, featuring the struggling Utes and the unbeaten Buffaloes

Colorado was a popular pick to finish fifth or even sixth in the Pac-12 South. So the Buffaloes' status as the division’s only unbeaten football team through three games is either a compliment to them or a commentary about the other schools.

Utes in the NFL: Week 2

Defensive end Derrick Shelby: There was a mixture of both good and bad from a shorthanded Atlanta Falcons defense this week. I’m not here to recap the entire game for you, but in a nutshell, for almost two quarters, the Falcons held the Panthers scoreless, and there was an interception midway through the fourth. The bad, however, is that the d-line struggled at times against an offense that was missing three starters. Derrick Shelby finished the game with 1 tackle to help lead the Falcons to a 31-24 win over the Panthers. Free safety Eric Weddle: We saw more production from Eric Weddle...
