Here's a quick synopsis of the episode:
We are almost a week away from the kick off of the 2015 Utah football season! The Michigan Wolverines and the fighting Harbaugh's are coming to Rice-Eccles on a Thursday night showdown, and SLC is abuzz! Before we get to that game, however, we wanted to do
To go along with the podcast, which is a GREAT
For all the reasons why we don't miss the game, more fall camp conversation, and much, much more listen to this week's episode!
Fresno St.- Win
Oregon- St.- Win
Points of Interest
1. I do not think Michigan can score enough points to beat Utah in RES this year. Utah's offense will be much improved and I think that the constant pounding of Booker is going to wear down the Wolverine D. Utah Pulls away late. 31-14
2. I think this is the best chance for Utah to get a win in Autzen. I believe that by game 3 Utah will have found an offensive identity and will have started to settle in. Utah wins a close one. 35-31
3. This is also the year Utah gets over the ASU hump.
4. USC is bringing back too much for me to pick Utah on the road. Kesler and
5. I don't feel that Oregon St is talented enough to put up a fight this year, even with the Anderson/Sitake drama. Utah is more talented across the board and the players want to prove a point. It's a massacre in RES on Halloween! 42-17
6. If this AZ game was at home this year, I would have picked Utah in a close one. Unfortunately, it's not. Hard for me to pick the Utes in Arizona.
Utah finishes 10-2 with a run at the Pac-12 south...
This game should be a much better game than the one a year ago in Ann Arbor. Jim Harbaugh has a proven track record of turning teams around quickly and he will have the Wolverines ready to play when they come into Rice-Eccles. That being said I see this game as coming down to who can make more stops in the 4th quarter and it's hard to bet against the Utah defense at home. I think it will be a hard fought game with the Utes pulling it out near the end. Utah 24-21
I think Utah wins this one pretty comfortably. It's at home and even with the return of Chuckie Keeton, Utah State will be missing a lot of talent from recent years. The Aggies keep it interesting for a half before Utah pulls away. Utah 31-14
This looks to be Utah's easiest game on schedule at first glance. Fresno State by all indications is not much improved from last season and we all know how that game ended up. Still, Fresno St.
Utah will be looking for some redemption after "dropping" a golden opportunity last season. Oregon loses Mariota, though returns the majority of their skill players and still boasts more talent than the Utes. I think Oregon will remember last year's game and come out focused, taking over the game early on. I don't think it will be a blowout, but I don't think Utah will ever be that close either. Oregon 41-21
It seems many are looking at the Cal game as this year's "terrible loss" for the Utes. Cal does have a great quarterback and explosive offense, but their defense is suspect and they will be playing in Salt Lake. I think it will be a close game, but I don't see an upset here. I think the Utes come out in their snazzy throwback uniforms ready to play, and take care of business at home. Utah 28-24
The Sun Devils always seem to have the Utes number and this year I think will be no different. The Sun Devils have to travel to Salt Lake City, but I think their defense will fluster Travis Wilson enough that the offense will have a hard time being effective. The Utah defense will keep the Utes in the game, but Arizona State pulls away in the 4th quarter. Arizona State 24-14
Looking at USC's roster, it's hard to find a team with more talent. Combine with the fact this game will be in the Colosseum and the manner in which Utah pulled out a victory last season, and I think USC is going to come out gunning for the Utes. Sark
It's going to be a rough year for Gary Anderson in Corvallis. The Beavers have lost a lot of talent, and with the coaching change its total rebuild mode up there. I think eventually Anderson finds success, but it won't be this year and not in Rice-Eccles. Utah 38-10
Chris Peterson is in year two at Washington and looks to have some issues ironed out going into his second season. The Huskies lost Shaq Thompson, Danny Shelton, Hau'oli Kikaha among others however and there in still no quarterback in Montlake. Utah gets its first win against the Huskies since joining the Pac-12. Utah 28-14
Arizona always runs
Jim Mora has recruited well since arriving in Westwood and has players like
There is no doubt the Buffs are improving under Mike Macintyre. Colorado was in several games last year and even had UCLA on the ropes before letting it slip away. I think Colorado will win some games and surprise some people this year and wouldn't be surprised if they pulled an upset against the Utes. However, my gut tells me Utah gets it done at home. Utah 24-21
Final record 8-4
