Game Preview

What to expect when Utah has the ball: A solid mix of offense, especially through the air. This is about as close as you get to a practice game and with Oregon State looming, giving Brian Johnson some tune-up plays might help when the opposing defense puts pressure on him.

What to expect when Weber has the ball: Utah teams under McBride were known for their running games, however, McBride has a pretty nifty .

How Utah wins: Defend. The. Option. It sounds simple, but it isn't. You know it's coming, yet that doesn't really help stopping it. Thankfully, this Utah defense is speedier on the edges and that may help contain the option run. If Utah isn't burned on the outside -- like they have been in years past -- and they force the Falcons to the air, they should do just enough to stop the offense and win the game.

Lucky lovin' the 3-0 start!
