The Utes' defense is very capable of delivering a Utah victory Saturday. They're talented, deep and experienced at certain spots, especially the defensive line. BYU's offensive line has had some issues already this season, and that could prove costly in a game like this.

Riley Nelson is a good quarterback, but how he handles the pressure of an imposing defensive line might dictate the overall outcome. He's a scrambler, and that certainly can have its benefits, but if the Utes take that away from him -- forcing him to throw instead of run -- it could make things difficult for BYU.
