Utah welcomes in former WAC foe Fresno State to Rice-Eccles Stadium. Fresno is coming off a beating at the hands of USC last week, 52-13. Fresno is bringing into Salt Lake a two-quarterback system under former Ute running backs coach and offensive coordinator Dave Schramm. The Bulldogs are searching for the replacement for Derek Carr, who is now starting for the Oakland Raiders.
Utah is looking to pick up win number two on the season, a season where wins could be hard to come by. Coming off of a 56-14 beating of FCS Idaho State, Utah is looking for a challenge before the schedule really takes off, beginning with a trip in two weeks to Michigan. This will be a good test for Travis Wilson, to see how well he's progressed post-injury. Also for the Ute o-line and running back corps. Will they be able to get good push off the ball to establish a running game? Will Utah's secondary make the appropriate improvements to contain a passing attack? More about this Utah team will be known after 60-minutes of football against the Bulldogs.
