Will Utah get their first win?
Saturday, September 9th
Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake City
Radio: 700 The Zone in Salt Lake City
All-time Series: First meeting
What to expect when Utah has the ball:
The Utes will look to prove their offensive performance against UCLA was a fluke. Whittingham has said the Utes want to pass more than run, so it won't be a surprise if they do exactly that. Daryl Poston is expected to start for the Utes at running back and should have no difficulty breaking through an overmatched NAU line.
What to expect when NAU has the ball:
NAU has a deep passing attack and a solid receiver in Alex Watson. Look for NAU to try and get him the ball all night long and if Utah's secondary struggles, he could become a realistic deep threat for the Lumberjacks.
How the Utes win:
Show up and play solid ball. They should not lose to NAU and even playing mediocre ball should be enough to beat Northern Arizona. Utah's offense should have an improved game and I expect the Utes defense to contain the Lumberjacks.
