Utah leads series 51-22-2

Last meeting: 2006 (Utah 35, CSU 22)

Game Preview

What to expect when Utah has the ball: Utah will probably try to run the ball a lot, since the Rams have the worst run defense in the conference. Darrell Mack has had 4 straight games of 100 or more yards. During that stretch, the Utes are 4-0. Don't expect much to change.

What to expect when CSU has the ball: A lot of running, since CSU has been fairly unimpressive through the air. Kyle Bell and Gartrell Johnson are two solid backs that could give Utah's defense fits if they don't tackle.

How Utah wins: Stop the run and force Caleb Hanie through the air. The Rams are toward the top of the country in interceptions thrown, while Utah is toward the top at intercepting passes in a game. That is not a good combo for CSU and if Utah plugs the line and cuts off the run, they should win with ease.

He's 4-0, looking to go 5-0, the the lucky leprechaun!

Give me a wee cheer for 5-0!
