The Utes are without Devontae Booker for the game against UCLA, and it will be interesting to watch how Aaron Roderick decides to call plays. Will he be more aggressive through the air? Or will they put the load on Joe Williams' shoulders in his first career start?
Also, how will Utah's defense handle true freshman Josh Rosen, and their talented running back Paul Perkins. Utah has matched up very well with UCLA since joining the league, and got 10 sacks a year ago against Brent Hundley. Rosen has a very good arm, and is poised for a freshman, so Utah should bring the heat and see if they can rattle the young QB.
There are only two home games left, and Utah has to win both for a chance to win the Pac-12 South Championship, and of course, they also need Oregon to beat USC Saturday as well.
