UTAH RUMORS & GOSSIP

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 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...

The crazy continues as another road team prevails in the PAC-12

There is no frigate like a Booker: Devontae Booker breaks loose for a 19-yard touchdown in double overtime, his third of the game, to give Utah a 29-23 win over Oregon State (Susan Ragan-USA TODAY Sports photo). Last night in Corvallis, Devontae Booker chugged 19 yards for a touchdown in double overtime as the Utah Utes beat Oregon State 29-23. In all Booker ran for 229 yards and...

Utah, Washington State snag JUCO commits

Two Pac-12 programs added verbal commitments from junior college programs in recent days, with the Utah Utes and Washington State Cougars each nabbing guards from the two year college ranks. Utah snagged City College of San Francisco (CA) wing Gabe Bealer. The last player from that junior college worked out extremely well for Utah, as current ...

Utah Utes Football: The QB Conundrum

Travis Wilson or Kendal Thompson? Kendal Thompson or Travis Wilson? Who do the Utes start? Who gives the Utes the best chance to Win? It seems like these questions will never end!!! 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: Travis Wilson’s Bloody Face

A hush fell over the Utah section of the Big House on Saturday. Travis Wilson, having just returned this season after suffering a potentially career ending concussion last year, took a dive to try to extend a play. That was a very poor decision on his part. While in the air a Michigan defender hit him at the knees, causing him to pummel towards his face as another defender rocks...
