“To see Oregon State this early on the season, it’s going to be a big test for us and we have to pass,” he said.
Statistics are secondary to the final outcome.
“I don’t pay attention to like statistics or anything,” Palepoi said. “I’m just trying to make plays and trying to be an impact player.”
Added Orchard: “My main focus is to win games. ... As long as I give my all every play on the field and the outcome is a victory, I’m fine.”
EXTRA POINTS: Utah is ninth in the nation in pass efficiency offense (192.75 rating) and 11th in scoring offense (50 points per game). ... Oregon State running back Jovan Stevenson has been suspended by the Pac-12 for the first half of Saturday’s game for a late hit on a defenseless opponent last week against Hawaii. ... Bleacher and standing-room-only tickets remain for the Utes’ five remaining home games.
