USC has its hands full with Utah RB Booker, resurgent Utes run game

Utah running back Devontae Booker is averaging just under 124 yards per game on the ground this season. Booker is second in the Pac-12, trailing only USC's Buck Allen. Booker is a prime example of the change in philosophy Utah has undergone in recent years. "They're a physical, downhill running football team," USC head coach Steve Sarkisian said. The USC head coach...

Utah football: Devontae Booker is driving Utah's offense

Without fail, The Beast says, he carves out a few minutes each day to hear baby chatter from a toddler. Junior running back Devontae Booker hasn’t seen his son, who lives with his mother in California, for a month now, but thanks to FaceTime and Skype he’s able to watch Deashon grow and learn. And on Saturdays — or Thursdays, as was the case in Corvallis — The Beast rages...

New Utes Shine in Men’s Basketball Scrimmage

Impressive on paper, the newest University of Utah Runnin’ Utes did not disappoint when they hit the shiny new floor at the Jon M. Huntsman Center Tuesday night. You might have expected the standouts to be highly recruited freshmen Kyle Kuzma or Brekkot Chapman. Instead it was a young man from Borah High School in Boise, Idaho who looked the most polished of any newcomer. Point...

Devontae Booker anchors No. 19 Utah's rush

Devontae Booker doesn't elaborate on his recent success, mostly saying he just runs hard. That tactic seems to work just fine for the Utah junior, who has rushed for an average of 187.7 yards in the last three games for the No. 19 Utes. His last outing was a 229-yard, three-touchdown eruption against Oregon State last Thursday night, sending Utah to a 29-23 double-overtime victory...

Utah Utes Football vs USC: Preview and Prediction

This weekend’s matchup against USC promises to be one of the toughest challenges the Utah Utes have faced so far this year. While I think the Utes have a shot at every game left on their schedule, I think they matchup particularly well in this game. The defense will put pressure on Kessler and stifle the Trojan run game and the offense has the tools to put up more yards than they...

Utah football: Utes name Travis Wilson as starter at QB

Once again, Travis Wilson is Utah’s starting quarterback. For now, anyway. The latest Utah depth chart released Monday — in something of a surprise, given Kyle Whittingham’s feeling Saturday that his starting quarterback would remain a secret — shows Wilson’s name in bold atop that of junior Kendal Thompson. The Utes’ Saturday opponent, USC is susceptible to the pass...

Utah football: Utes rise to No. 19 in AP, coaches polls

A modest rise, but a rise nonetheless. Following the best Pac-12 start since the Utes joined the conference, Utah is now ranked at 19th in both the AP Top 25 Poll and the Amway Coaches Poll. The Utes rose one spot in the AP Poll and four spots in the Coaches Poll. Utah looked sluggish in the first few quarters against Oregon State on Thursday, but a dominant performance by Devontae...

Utah Utes Football: A Case of the Drops

The receiving core at the University of Utah has developed a nasty case of the drops. Drops are contagious, and if spread, can be deadly to offensive production. Drops can typically last anywhere from 1 game to 13 games. Some side effects of drops include: lack of touchdowns, lack of passing and/or receiving yards, loss of playing time and ultimately lost games. If not corrected...

Utah Utes Basketball: The Knickerbockers Conundrum

Larry Kryskowiak equals Derek Fisher? Carmelo Anthony equals Jordan Loveridge? Okay, maybe I am reaching on this a little, but the Knicks and Utes basketball team do have something in common. They are learning a similar offense. The Utes have started practicing and part of that practice is learning the new offense. This new offense is predicated upon the players making the right...

Utah Utes Football: The QB Conundrum

If the Utes go with Wilson, they are going with a guy that has the edge in experience, has shown he can win big games (Stanford) and has the kind of toughness and heart that you want out of any player...

Utah Utes Football: Why Oregon State Scares Me

Another big win for the Utah Utes is in the books and a bye week to rest and recalibrate for another road trial waits. Although this Utah team is now ranked in the top 25 for the first time in four years, their next game against unranked Oregon State scares me more than some of the more daunting looking matchups on their schedule like USC and Stanford (where I think Utah matches...

Once the little engines that could, TCU and Utah Produce coming-of-age moments in their new conference homes

Late Saturday night out on the West Coast, Utah capped one of the wildest weekends in college football’s recent memory, and certainly the most bizarre sequence of events thus far in the dawn of the College Football Playoff era. Utah handed previously unbeaten UCLA its first loss of the season, thus adding quite the wrinkle in the Pac-12 race moving forward. It was the second straight...
