Co-offensive coordinator Dennis Erickson came out of retirement this season to help bolster Utah's offense. The addition of Erickson has worked, as the Utes' offensive has become much more exciting.
But exciting and dynamic are about the only things the coaches can expect despite a good amount of familiarity with Erickson. Mora worked under Erickson in San Francisco and offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone held the same position under Erickson at Arizona State.
"He'll have some things drawn up that we haven't seen and we just have to react to it," Mora said. "Dennis just does an excellent job of taking advantage of opposing defenses and weaknesses that he may perceive in a defense.

Norman Powell has Alford to thank for "Bowlegs" and Jordan Adams for "Spider-man."
It's light. It's playful. It's personal. It'...
