SALT LAKE CITY — It was a much-needed break for the Utah Blaze.

Following two unexpected losses in consecutive weeks, the Blaze were granted the opportunity to re-group during their bye week. Now it’s time for business. Utah will look to right the ship against Chicago (2-2) Saturday at EnergySolutions Arena at 8 p.m.

The Rush, who are on a two-game winning streak, are led by Carson Coffman, who was the backup behind Blaze quarterback Tommy Grady last season. He’s thrown for 816 yards and 18 touchdowns in four starts for Chicago.

“The two biggest areas we have to eliminate are penalties and turnovers,” Utah coach Ron James said in a released statement. “We’ve got to put ourselves in better positions, play smarter football and hone in on situations a lot better.”
