Looks like a reloading year for the Defensive Line.

"Sophomore Sam Tevi (6-5, 295) switched to defensive tackle from the offensive line during spring camp."

However, count him in those with game experience, as he played defense in 6 games last season with 2 TFLs and a sack. He'll be a contributor. The D-Line, just like every year, has nothing to worry about. Just retooling.

Go Utes!!

The real question is can they compete?

Always our strongest unit! If the offense can play half as good as the defense, we'll get to 7 games.

And with Coach Christensen running the offense, lets just say I like our chances!

Johnny Triumph,

Why would you question their competiveness? Do you not know anything about the Utes defense since Kyle has been at Utah?

Layton, UT

We all know that I don't support byu but I would not question it's defense since bronco has been there, not even after 54-10.

@ekute - It's a valid question that we won't have the answer to until the season, let's have discussion about it. And great job bringing BYU into the conversation, let's us Ute fans keep it about the Utes!

I'm also pleased that the official website is no longer hosted by cstv!

Johnny Triumph,
With the tone of your question I assumed that you was a byu fan, that's why I mentioned them.

I maintain that Utah's defense has more than held it's own when competing in the PAC.

Salt Lake City, UT

Defensive line is the one position that the Utes never have to worry about, they never have to rebuild, they simply reload.

It will be fun to see which players step up! I think Stevie T will one to watch.

Ifel Of'a-sofa,

What is the over/under that you are actually duckhunter?
