Here we go folks.  After 12 days off and the hangover of BYU week nonsense behind us we return to the very important subject of Pac-12 football.  Now winning tonight isn’t an absolute key in order for Utah to make a bowl, but a Utah win would make a serious statement about the direction of the program.  UCLA has a lot of talent starting with their QB, Brett Hundley and they should be expected to win this game.  I have to be honest about that.

But this Utah team has shown something special this season, that is they’ve shown fight.  They battled through adversity in both the Oregon St. and Utah St. games are a Michael Walker interception away from being 4-0.  And fight goes a long way.

A couple of things I’d like to see.

Turnovers…  It seems for the 2nd year we’re just missing on interceptions and fumbles are not bouncing our way.  I believe at some point this changes, let it be tonight.

Contain Hundley… Just can’t having him running and throwing for wild.

Mr. Wilson continues to make a statement.  Another big game from Travis minus the three picks he had at OSU would be great.

Like I said at the start of the week, Utah needs to do A LOT right, and UCLA a few things wrong, but a couple of hours before game time, I don’t hate where the Utes are.

See you at halftime and post game.
