Might not have been the greatest or prettiest win in Utah history, but the Utes took care of business tonight and beat an upstart Utah State team seeking to make a name for themselves.
I won't fully get into the game (that'll come later), but the Utes played about as well as I thought they would (I did pick them to win 35-13 and I was pretty much spot on). Terrance Cain, though, impressed me. He wasn't great, but I thought he'd struggle a bit more than he did.
If there is a surprise, it was the defense - though they played decent enough in the second half.
Ultimately, we knew things could be difficult for Utah and while it wasn't as good as I had hoped - it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been.
So until I throw up a full recap, let's hear your thoughts. Grade the game and let me know what you thought.
