At 100 percent, quarterback Travis Wilson (6-21, 121 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions) struggled enough against a defense ranking just 60th in the nation in scoring defense. He also didn’t have enough protection on the offensive line, which coach Kyle Whittingham joked gave Wilson only 1.8 seconds to throw.

After a poor performance for the third straight game, Wilson has made clear he is lacking confidence. Neither Bubba Poole (17 carries, 43 yards) nor Kelvin York (12 plays, 39 yards) found rhythm. Dres Anderson (four catches, 100 yards) was one of two receivers to catch passes, but he never saw the ball in the fourth quarter. Overall, the Utes managed just 247 total yards and had two turnovers.

I have a lot of respect for coach Kyle, but I think he must have been in a different 4th quarter then the rest of us. They completely abandoned the game that got them to the 4th quarter with the lead. And I loved the game up to that point. They really gave this one away and coaching is an appropriate place to put the blame. Usually Kyle is the best in the state.

Rhett, Rhett, Rhett, I am surprised your still writing. I figured you would be hiding since your projection that USU would not win six games. I suppose your okay since you are writing about fact now, instead of conjecture. Just to remind you, USU is bowl eligible with 2 games to play. Back to the drawing board for you Rhettski!
