Utah's offense struggles in scrimmage as defense dominates

New, comments

Jordan Wynn and the Utah offense had arguably their worst day of camp today as the defense dominated Tuesday morning's scrimmage.

Utah's offensive line played a major role in those struggles today, as the defense had 11 sacks and kept both Wynn and Jon Hays scrambling for most of the morning.

Both Wynn and Hays finished the day minus-45 yards and minus-37 yards rushing respectively. 

The lack of depth on the offensive line showed, though Whittingham was quick to note that the injuries don't excuse to the porous play. 

He also wasn't satisfied with Wynn's play, calling his completing 9-of-16 passes and throwing a touchdown overall average. 

Tauni Vakapuna continued surging up the depth charts, performing the best of Utah's potential running backs today.

He finished with 48 yards on eight carries. Langi, who started camp as one of the favorites, though has faded a bit over the month, had only eight yards on seven carries. 

John White sat out the scrimmage with a sore hip. 

Utah holds their third scrimmage Saturday and hopefully there is improvement across the board. Whittingham said after Tuesday's scrimmage that the offense and placekicking are not where they need to be - though praised the defense.
