Utah football report card: Ute offense goes missing in loss to USC

Published: Saturday, Oct. 26 2013 9:04 p.m. MDT

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 471 yards, so the Utes never took advantage Saturday against a mediocre Trojans team that didn’t improve.

Coach Whitt should spend the week in Columbus interning with Urban during the bye week to get some mojo back.

The coaching get's an F for game planning for USC with an injured QB. Shultz wasn't ready to take on a good USC defense.

"Since defeating Stanford two weeks ago, the Utes have completely fallen apart. Utah beat BYU five weeks ago, but given the directions of the teams since, the result may very well be different if the game was played now." -- Dereet News

The author of this article gets an F for making a homer comment that has nothing to do with the article.

Would the result be different if Utah played BYU today?

Maybe, because we have an injured starting QB, TE, and a kicker that is anything but clutch. But we still have a great defense.

So yes BYU MIGHT have a chance with Utah playing this horrible.

I say MIGHT because we've also proven we can beat BYU with a horrible team (5-7) led by a D2 QB and a horrible #109 ranked offense by 40 points at LES.
