Red tops White 20-10 in the 2017 Utah Football Spring Game

It was a rather uneventful day at the spring game on Saturday, as the Red squad topped the White team by a score of 20-10. The second half was pretty worthless, but the first half had some interesting tidbits. The Red squad jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead when Tyler Huntley led them down the field by feeding Devontae Henry-Cole over and over again, both through the air on and on...

Offensive line prospects for the New York Jets to keep an eye on

The New York Jets will select with the sixth overall pick in the NFL draft, barring a trade. The Jets have holes all over their roster, on both sides of the ball. Due to the lack of talent on the roster, expect the Jets to select the best player available with each selection. The Jets offensive line is probably one of the better units on the roster, which is a sad thing to say considering...

Final Spring Scrimmage Recap

Utah football head coach Kyle Whittingham always calls the final scrimmage of spring the most important practice in spring football. The Red and White game, which is on Saturday April 15, is mostly for the fans. The coaches do not use it as much to analyze players in position battles because many starters sit out of the game and the fact that the defense is required to only play...

Troy Williams ranked No. 42 starting QB by Athlon

Troy Williams had a pretty up and down first year as Utah’s starting quarterback. The highs of beating USC on a last minute drive that he orchestrated, to the lows of losing to Colorado on inefficient throwing. But all-in-all, I thought Troy’s first year was solid, and he showed some high potential in many of those Pac-12 games. I thought he wasn’t aided by play calling as...
