Utah Utes defensive back Julian Blackmon (23) celebrates the Utes 40-21 victory over Stanford in Palo Alto California on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.

Fresh off a win at formerly-No. 14 Stanford, the Utes are 3-2 and 1-2 in Pac-12 play. Friday night's game against the Arizona Wildcats will be the first South Division game Utah plays and will be a key test for the Utes.

ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI)currently favors Utah in all seven of its remaining games in the 2018 season, starting with the Arizona game Friday, which gives Utah a 81.5 percent chance to win. ESPN's FPI gives Utah the greatest chance to win the BYU game (87.3 percent), while the Arizona State game on the road (54.1 percent) is the least likely win, according to the FPI.
