Since his superhuman first 3 games of the year, Franklin has been decent, but not the great back he started out as. Slow him down and force some freshman mistakes by Hundley and the game is very winnable.

I look to see the run open up, the line to take another step forward, pass protection for Hays to throw deep to the playmakers (Scott, Andersen, and Christopher).

If the offense is better, the defense will be stable, and Utah can gain some confidence with a win in Los Angeles.

If this gets Utah going, maybe they can go on the road again vs. OSU (without Mannion) and play not to conservative against the Beaver defense. It's a tall order, but two road wins would be great to come home with. After that, the schedule favors Utah the rest of the way, save it be in Seattle vs. The Huskies.

Utah could still go 8-4 or 7-5. Running the table to go 9-3 would be to much wishful thinking. I will take a winning record in the conference and a decent bowl game.

I don't see it. They tend to struggle against the spread. See ASU game for a refresher.

Franklin will end up with around 125 yards, Fauria will score 2 easy TDs, and the Utes lose this one by at least 24.

I, for one, don't care whether Doman shaves his head, eats gratuitous amounts of baby carrots, snuggles with a football he played with at Skyline HS, or wears sweat pants on dates with his wife. I think he is a better OC than Brian Johnson.
