Although Sitake would like to see more big plays, he was pleased that there weren't a lot of missed assignments.
As such, the logjam at linebacker remains competitive. With junior Trevor Reilly entrenched at the stud position, Whittingham said the Utes are still sorting out the other starting two linebacker spots. Candidates include current depth chart guys V.J. Fehoko, Jared Norris and LT Filiaga, as well as reserves like Dave Fagergren and Victor Spikes.
Norris had two tackles-for-loss in the scrimmage and Spikes was credited with 1.5 sacks.
"That's a position where we've really got to study the film carefully to make sure they're doing what they need to do," Whittingham said of the situation at linebacker.
