Talking Utah Football with Mark Rogers: Previewing the Defensive Line

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Ok, so it's a no brainer which unit is the best on the Utah football team, and it's the defensive line. Utah has been basically D-line University going back to when Ronnie Mac took over the program, but it's just continued to get better. Not many schools can lose a player like Stevie Tu'ikolovatu and just brush it off.

As I talked about with Mark Rogers on his YouTube channel, this is a scary unit, with Hunter Dimick, Lowell Lotulelei, Kylie Fitts and the rest of the crew. When you have Hunter and Kylie on the outside, with Lowell clogging up the middle, and the likes of Pita T coming in to rush the passer? It's a unit that just continues to impress, and will be the heart of the Utah defense, as always.

A crew like this will allow for the Utah linebackers to be free to make plays, and with little experience in the linebacking corps, that'll go a long way.
