This Utah team is one of the most resilient and mentally tough teams in the Kyle Whittingham era. The team battled back from big deficits against both Utah State and Oregon State, and played with poise in its first game on the road against BYU. Utah will need to keep that edge and toughness in the weeks ahead as it prepares to face a tough in-conference schedule.

If the Utes can stay positive through adversity and keep fighting, they will most likely be successful in their quest for a bowl.

Good luck in the PAC Utes. Going to be tough sledding from here on out. Btw Oregon State barely beat SDSU also, and the Aztecs gave up way less offense to Mannion and company. Utes have to tighten things up defensively, because they're headed straight into a firestorm of offensively potent opponents. While I'm a BYU fan I still cheer for the utes in their conference...lock down the defense and get it done. Bring some hardware home to the great state of Utah.

Let's dispense with the sportswriter fluff (they just try and sound intelligent) and cut to the quick: Score more points than your opponent.
