On the other side of this matchup is the Utah Utes who sit with an 11-12 record overall but they have won two of their last three games. In the last game against Arizona State, the offense was elite putting up 98 points and that led to the blowout victory.

Utah looked impressive in the last game and they should be able to build off that in this game. Look for Utah to lock down with their defense and that will lead to the Utes coming away with a cover of the spread.
