Runnin' Utes hope to bounce back after another close defeat.
This is Utah's moment to prove they're really, really more improved. Their opponent, the USC Trojans, are not entirely good - as they're 6-10 on the regular season and 1-2 in conference play. They're also winless on the road and coming off a sluggish performance against Colorado Wednesday night.
So, how far has Utah really come since last season? I think this game will tell us a lot. I already outlined why the Trojans aren't very good, so, a win, at home, should be expected ... and a defeat? Well, prepare yourself for a prolonged stay at Le Chateau Au Fond.
Hopefully that isn't the case and the Runnin' Utes can put those close losses behind 'em. This is a game they really need and I'm hopin' for a whippin'.
