Utah football: 5 Oregon State Beavers to watch this weekend against the Utes

Junior receiver Brandon Cooks Next » 1 of 5 « Prev
Cooks is just one of many talented receivers making plays for the Beaver offense. A Pac-12 honorable mention last season, Cooks is positioning himself to receive more awards this season.

Cooks is already one of Oregon State’s top receivers and if he continues to produce, he is on track to be among the top three receivers in school history. At 5-foot-10, he may seem undersized, but he makes up for it in athletic ability, making him a viable target in the red zone. Just ask Hawaii.

Cooks made seven catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns. Utah’s cornerbacks have their work cut out trying to keep the ball out of Cooks' hands.

This game should be a good measuring stick for the Utes. Should they lose, they are in for a LONG season. If they can win impressively however, they might just be on their way to a winning season and a bowl this year. Should be a fun game to watch, unless they get thoroughly embarrassed at home... Good Luck Utes!

Should be a good game and the utes could pull it out at home. It too bad that the utes schedule most of their games at home this year. I guess that is one way to pad the win column.
They are doing the same in basketball. A confident team would play more games on the road
Go Beavers. Roll the utsies.

Great comment; The utes have not won a conference opener since joining the pac+u. How funny is that.

The coaches & players we have on the field have us pointed toward building another 2008 team in the next couple of years. Definitely a vast improvement of the last couple years playing without a quarterback. Go Utes, we really need this one!

The Utes won't have to watch Enger because he is out with a knee injury. The Beaver O-line in general is decimated with injuries, so I don't think that is considered a strength for them in this game (though it might be if all their starters were healthy).
