The Utes find themselves with a 7-3 record heading into week 13 of the college football season following a 20-17 double overtime defensive thriller in Palo Alto on Saturday afternoon.

Kaelin Clay takes responsibility for loss

Utah senior wide receiver Kaelin Clay took responsibility for his team’s loss against Oregon on Saturday. While he wasn’t the sole reason Utah lost, he certainly cost his team plenty. Early in the second quarter, Clay caught a pass that he nearly turned into a 79-yard touchdown. The problem is he celebrated early and dropped...Read More

Oregon Overcomes Utah, Moving Closer to the College Football Playoff

One of the most popular conversation topics throughout the week was whether Oregon belongs in the College Football Playoff. On Saturday evening, the Ducks left no doubt that they deserve a spot in the field if they should win out. That’s not to say that Oregon’s win over Utah was perfect. After all, the offense couldn’t block the Ute front seven early in the contest, resulting...

WATCH: Utah WR's boneheaded play leads to 14-point swing

Scouting report: ASU vs. Utah

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Another week, another battle for Pac-12 South position. This week the top spot is up for grabs.

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 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 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...

Underdogs TCU and Utah shine in new conferences

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...

Utah Hangs On To Beat UCLA, Remain in Pac-12 South Race

Just seven days ago, Utah’s hopes of winning its division took a huge hit after the team blew a 21-point lead against Washington State. However, thanks to a very aggressive pass rush and some stellar play from their backup quarterback, the Utes still control their own destiny in the Pac-12 South race. Let’s be honest: no one gave Utah much of a chance to win this game. Even after...

Utah Utes Football: Utah vs Idaho State Post Game Analysis and Grades

I know this post is a few days late but I just recently got back from being out of the country and had my first chance to watch this game last night. Offense: B I give the offense a B because in all reality they really didn’t show much versus ISU. The 2nd and 3rd strings played a majority of the game and the packages and plays that were called were pretty vanilla. It’s obvious...

UTAH UTES PREVIEW: Kickers/Punters/Special Teams

The kicking and punting game should be very good again this season. Returning sophomore kicker Andy Phillips will look to continue his stellar play from last season. Phillips is an All American candidate and one of the most reliable kickers in the country. The punting game will also boast an All American candidate in returning junior punter Tom Hackett. Hackett was first team All...

Utah Utah Tight Ends Preview

The tight end position has always been a big part of Utah’s offense over the years and it will continue to be a big part this season as well. With new offensive coordinator Dave Christensen taking on the role of tight ends coach, look for these big fellas to be relied upon in the passing game, especially in RedZone situations. With Jake Murphy leaving school early for the NFL,...

Utah Utes Preview: Wide Receivers

Another new season for the Utes will bring a new Offensive Coordinator, a brand new Wide Receiver Coach and another new Up-Tempo Offense being installed. The Wide Receiver group up on the hill will be utilized this season more than they ever have in season’s past. Dres Anderson (SR 6’2 190) and Kenneth Scott (JR 6’3 208) were supposed to form one of the best duos in the Pac...

Utah Utes Football: Players that should change positions

On the heels of hearing that Harvey Langi will be switching to defense when he returns home from a mission in June. I really like this move for Langi. It will be interesting to see if he was able to keep most of his speed and quickness along with the added size. In my opinion, I would love to see him drop down to a lean mean 225-230lbs. and assume a Jacoby Hale type role with the...

Utah Utes season preview

Kyle Whittingham enjoyed tremendous success during his first nine seasons as head coach of the Utah Utes, and reached the Sun Bowl in the Utah’s first season in the Pac-12. It’s been a bumpy road the last couple years with consecutive 5-7 records, but coach Whittingham may have the right players to make an impact in 2014. The offense will be led by the 6-foot 7-inch tall, 240...

Utah Utes Spring Football: Welcome back Wilson

The Utah Utes spring scrimmage yesterday left fans with an exuberance of hope for the season. The offense owned the day as Christensen’s impact has become apparent, the running backs continued to impress, and the competition at quarterback finally showed some separation. The most immediate impression that I took away from yesterday’s scrimmage was tempo – huddles have been...

It’s a tough job but someday has to do it right? Somebody HAS to go watch Utah football in July-like conditions one day and December-like conditions the next. Somebody has to take a look at the current crop of Quarterbacks because we all know that Utah will only go as far as their Quarterbacks can take them. Since somebody had to do it I’ve gone through many “hardships” to...
