What has happened to the Utah offense?

Just two weeks after beating fifth-ranked Stanford, the Utes played their worst game of the season against USC. In losing the turnover battle 4-0, Utah handed the contest to the Trojans. The teams combined for just 461 yards, so the Utes never took advantage Saturday against a mediocre Trojans team that didn’t improve.

Here's the grades for the Utes after their 19-3 loss to USC.
