I have watched all 5 games this year and I have my fears with Oregon State.  Are the Utes going to come out and play a complete game?  Is Ludwig going to open it up or fold with his play calling?  Will we hang on to the ball?  Is Johnson going to throw the ball out of bounds before he gets sacked – or better yet run it?  Are the defensive backs going to stay with their assignments?  These are some of the questions that I have and I’m not the only one asking - so are a few other folks:

 “There have been too many turnovers, too many sacks and too many stalled drives against inferior competition. In easy wins over Utah State and Weber State.  The Utes rank near the bottom in the national stats in sacks allowed at No. 103, are tied for 93rd in turnovers lost and are tied for 69th in turnover margin”. - Mike Sorensen

 Oregon State is probably licking their lips with those 2 stats.

 “Sometimes we hold the ball too long, sometimes our protection's broken down and sometimes the route structure has been very poor and we're not getting open,” - Kyle Whittingham

 Johnson, O-line, Ludwig take notes here – important stuff – the BOSS is seeing these things.

 Why the Utes will win on Thursday:

1.)   Payback for last year.

2.)    It is a BIG GAME

<3.)  They are due for a complete game

 How will they win:

1.)    Let the game come to them – it slows the action down and helps make plays

2.)    They will take a more prophylactic approach than the Trojans (had to get that in somehow)

3.)  Control the time of possession and play solid defense
