Game Preview

What to expect when Utah has the ball: I would not be surprised if Andy Ludwig opened up the offense a bit, mixing in passes and runs. There is no doubt Utah's offense hasn't performed at a high level consistently this season, but maybe Saturday is when they start.

What to expect when CSU has the ball: The Rams don't have much of an offense, but they do rank 2nd in the conference is passing yards per game. Expect them to air it out, a lot, since their running attack ranks toward the bottom of the conference. Will it be enough, though, against a solid Utah secondary?

How Utah wins: Come out firing and don't give the Rams hope. I have no doubt CSU is entering this game believing they can win and if they build some early momentum and make a game out of it, anything is possible. The Rams' defense isn't great, so Utah should move the ball well and if the defense defends the pass as well as they are capable of doing, this should be an easy Utah victory.

Lucky knows how it goes!

A jig and drink for 8-0 this week!
