Great win, Utes.26-14.The number one rusher in the
nation held to what 50 yards? I think White had 3 times as many yards as Graham
did and more yards than the entire Pitt offense.Utes win the
turnover battle, 3-0.But, Pittsburgh gets a 98 yard kickoff return
for a TD, followed a minute later by a blocked punt returned for a touchdown.The defense played very well.Hays didn't make any serious
mistakes. Played pretty well, actually. And White broke his yardage record set
three weeks ago in Provo.Offensive line played very well on running
plays, not so well on pass plays, particularly with a lot of procedure calls
against them. The defensive line controlled the game from start to finish and
it was nice to see the big lineman pull in the interception and lumber it back
for a TD. I must say, usually you want the offense to have the ball
with a one score lead down the stretch, but with the way the defense was
playing, I was glad it was in their hands to effectively close out the game.
They said the same thing about Pitt's RB last year, and the Utes handled him
pretty well.If the Utes can establish a decent running game and can
take care of the ball, I see the Utes pulling this one out. If not, a
thirtysomething to fourteen game is not out of the question...again.MY PREDICTION:Utah 23Pitt 17GO Utes!
@davidutefanTheir D may not be good enough to force 6 turnovers, but
the bigger question is...............wait for it, IS the Ute offense good enough
to keep themselves from giving away 6 turnovers a la UW and ASU.We
shall see. Good luck to the Utes. This Coug fan thinks it is a great year for
Ags, Utes and Cougs to be back in bowl games in the same year!
Didn't take long for the trolls to show up on this one. Yes He's a phenomenal
back on a mediocre, one dimensional team. The pass is what's given Utah the most
trouble this year and, goodDr, their d isn't good enough to force 6 turnovers.
Utah 31-Pitt 17.
Superior athletes, more speed, big BCS conference member. This one is easy to
predict.Utah 6Pitt 1MARK IT DOWN!!!(Of
course, this is the # of turnovers each team will have.)
