Welcome back to Rice-Eccles Stadium! The Utes kick off the seven game home slate today against NIU, in a rare morning game. The Utes started off the season on the right foot, and now they need to continue that progression into this game against NIU.
I’ll have my eyes on the offensive line and Tyler Huntley. How well do they protect him, and how aggressive is he in the passing game? I would love to see him take some shots downfield, and let his wideouts stretch their legs a bit.
On defense, I want to see them living in the NIU backfield. Ross Bowers, a Cal transfer, is the QB for the Huskies, and I want him to be running for his life and on his back often. This is a great opportunities for the defense to work on some more exotic schemes and really get after the offense.
