Quick Look

Saturday, November 25th
1:30 p.m.
Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake City
Radio: AM 700 The Zone
All-Time: Utah leads 49-28-4
Last Meeting: 2005 (Utah 41, TDS 34)
What to expect when Utah has the ball: The Utes need to be lights out on offense to build up their confidence. A shaky start will most likely mean a big loss to TDS. If they can come out and score on their first possession, the Utes will be in good shape. Poston should run the ball well and if he can stay healthy the entire game, then Utah's offense should get some things going. Don't be surprised also if the Utes do a few trick plays, throwing TDS' defense off their game.

What to expect when TDS has the ball: A solid offense all around. TDS has a great passing game and a decent running game. John Beck has been very effective this season at passing and if he goes off like he has all conference season, the Utes could be in trouble.

How the Utes win: Set the tempo early with an offensive score or big defensive stop. TDS has jumped out to big leads in every conference game they've played this season and if Utah hangs in there, TDS could make enough mistakes to throw away the game. If the Utes can pressure Beck, force him into an interception or two, and the offense comes to perform, it could be a long night for TDS.
