Utes finally get that signature win in Pac-12

Posted Oct 13th - 7:56pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — After losing their first two conference games of 2013, reality was beginning to set in for the Utes. Utah had started its initial two seasons in the Pac-12 at 0-4 in conference play, and with a No. 5 team rolling into Salt Lake City, that was a trend that seemed almost certain to continue in year three.

Sure, the Utes had been competitive in most conference games, but seemed to lack that final push to get over the hump. The few Pac-12 wins the Utes did get were all against teams with losing records. Possibly the best conference victory Utah could claim was a 31-6 win over UCLA in year 1. The Bruins represented the Pac-12 South in the conference title game, but got crushed by Oregon and lost their bowl game to finish 6-8.

The Utes had lacked that signature win over one of the top tier members of the conference — a win that could propel their success going forward.

5 things the Utes need to do to beat Stanford

Posted Oct 11th - 1:20pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — So close, yet so far away. As the saying goes, "almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades."

The Utes (3-2, 0-2 Pac-12) have come oh so close to picking up conference wins in their first two attempts, only to come up short, losing both games by a combined ten points.

Next up for the Utes is No. 5 Stanford that is coming off a 31-28 win over a ranked Washington team.

10 things to know about Utah vs. No. 5 Stanford

Posted Oct 8th - 12:07pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — While there are no such things as moral victories, there are a lot of positives to build on from the Utes' first two conference losses.

"I think we're knocking at the door," Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said during Monday's press conference. "We've got to make a few more plays -- that's the short version. When you're close like that, it usually comes down to a play or two or three plays that's the difference, which has been the case in those two games. The opponents have made those plays, and we haven't. We've got to find a way to make those plays."

Unfortunately for the Utes, the task to create those few plays that could change the outcome of the game gets even more difficult as No. 5 Stanford comes into Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday.

SALT LAKE CITY — It was there for the taking. The Utes were in position to knock off the 12th ranked team in the country and earn their first signature win against a Pac-12 opponent. UCLA executed when it mattered most and the Utes didn't allowing the Bruins to escape Rice-Eccles Stadium with a 34-27 victory.

We break down the loss and look at what positives you can build on and what needs to change to get this team to a point where it can win in the Pac-12.

Turnovers stymie Utes' upset chance vs. No. 12 UCLA

Posted Oct 4th - 12:15am by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Only what was good is now bad, and what was bad is now good.

Confused? Me too.

For as much grief as Utah's defense received for giving up over 400 passing yards to Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion, if not for their stellar play against the No. 12 UCLA Bruins, Thursday's game could have been much, much uglier.

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah has started out 0-4 in Pac-12 play both years since joining the conference in 2011.

And after falling to 0-1 in conference play with a heartbreaking 51-48 overtime loss to Oregon State, the Utes now face an uphill battle that just seems outright daunting on paper — with four of their next six opponents ranked in the Top 25.

SALT LAKE CITY — And just like that, one-third of the season is already in the books.

The Utes are sitting at 3-1, about right where most fans had penciled them in before the season began.

But here comes the gauntlet. Four out of the next six opponents are in the Top 25, including No. 12 UCLA, who visits Rice-Eccles Stadium Thursday night in a nationally televised showdown.

Wilson to Anderson proves the difference in what was yet another close rivalry game

Posted Sep 22nd - 1:23am by Robert Jackson

PROVO — The Utah vs. BYU rivalry has always been a hard fought battle that usually ends up going right down to the wire. It is only fitting that the 2013 edition fit that bill perfectly.

The Utah Utes (3-1) outlasted the BYU Cougars (1-2) 20-13 in a game that neither team seemed ready to take control of.

The play calling for the Utes was suspect at times, leading to seven three and outs by the Utes offense. In addition, the Utes were an abysmal 1-14 on third downs.

Posted Sep 19th - 5:05pm by KSL.com

SALT LAKE CITY — Fans on both sides have been waiting for this to come since the wild ending witnessed in Rice-Eccles roughly one year ago — the BYU vs. Utah rivalry.

And, like most years, this game is too close to call. Will the Cougars get their first win in the rivalry since 2009? Or will the Utes win their fourth straight in the series?

To help you get the scoop on what each team needs to do to win, we brought in BYU insider Cleon Wall and Utah insider Robert Jackson.

Utes' deficiencies exposed against Oregon State

Posted Sep 16th - 10:51am by Mike Grant

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utes showed fight. They never quit. The offense is good. Travis Wilson is for real. Bubba Poole can play, too. There were some positives in the game against Oregon State, but there were also some negatives.

It is quite possible that Utah fans are just spoiled after watching Kyle Whittingham's defenses. They have been stout, sometimes outright dominant.

How about this year? So far, it's suspect.


Slow start, lack of pass rush doom Utes in Pac-12 shootout

Posted Sep 15th - 12:48pm by Robert Jackson

SALT LAKE CITY — Historically, Utah hasn't fared so well in conference openers since joining the Pac-12. And the 2013 Oregon State Beavers weren't about to let that trend change.

Despite a desperate rally from the offense to force overtime, Utah fell to 0-3 in Pac-12 Conference openers as they lost to Oregon State 51-48 in a high octane shootout at Rice-Eccles Stadium Saturday night.

To say the Utes overcame a lethargic start would be an understatement. Two minutes into the second quarter, Oregon State had more points (13) than Utah had yards (12). Utah was held without a first down for the entire first quarter. Nine plays, 12 yards, three punts.

SALT LAKE CITY — The difficulty gets kicked up a couple of notches as the Utes turn their attention from a huge blowout win over Weber State to their first Pac-12 matchup of the season.

Utah (2-0, 0-0 Pac-12) welcomes in Oregon State (1-1, 0-0 Pac-12) Saturday to Rice-Eccles Stadium in a late night showdown on national TV.

For the Utes, they face an Oregon State team that lost to Eastern Washington in week 1, but bounced back to beat Hawaii last week.
