Watch for: The way the Utes adapt to Jonathan Crosswhite at QB after Darnell Arceneaux broke his right index finger in practice Tuesday. Crosswhite started the first nine games last season, but Arceneaux started vs. Rice and BYU and won both games, then started and won both games this season. Crosswhite directed two scoring drives in last Saturday's game against Louisville in a reserve role.
