Once upon a time, the Beavers used to be ranked in the Top 25 in the land. We aren’t holding their loss against the Eastern Washington Eagles completely against them, but perhaps we should. As far as we are seeing it, this is a Top 25 team that is going on the road that is an underdog against an unranked team. Utah has really played relatively well early in the campaign, beating up on the Weber State Wildcats and the Utah State Aggies. The schedule hasn’t been great, and the team hasn’t left home yet this year, but there is a real chance for this one to be a game that perhaps gets the team in the Top 25 in the land.
All that being said, no one was particularly high on Utah coming into this season, and most figured that the team wasn’t even going to make a bowl game in the rough and tumble Pac-12. These are the types of games that need to be won, and we aren’t sure that that is going to be the case. All the talk is there that QB Travis Wilson has thrown for nearly 600 yards this season in two games, and that’s great. However, at least as of this point, we just don’t believe that he is better than QB Sean Mannion, who has also put up tremendous numbers this season. Remember that Mannion doesn’t play defense, and it isn’t his fault if the team is playing poorly defensively. Mannion has a lot of talented players on this offense, and that’s going to make the difference in this one. Run with the Beavs.
