Why Utah Will Win

Oregon is sixth in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, Utah is seventh.

Shhhhhhhh, but Utah is playing better.

The defense has been a brick wall, stuffing everyone from Washington State to UCLA to Arizona State over a dominant six-game winning streak since losing to USC.

The Utah got past a nasty Washington team in Seattle in a 33-28 win. Other than that, the Ute D hasn’t allowed more than seven points in any game since the end of September.

Relatively healthy and playing air-tight on both sides of the ball, the Utes are owning third downs, they’re balanced with a brutally efficient attack, and they’re leading the nation in run defense.

It’s all working.

Arizona can wing the ball around a bit, but the defense doesn’t have a prayer of slowing down a red-hot Tyler Huntley, who’s among the nation’s most efficient passers averaging close to 12 yards per throw with 13 touchdowns and one lone interception.

Arizona has the nation’s second-worst pass defense and doesn’t generate a lick of a pass rush to help the cause.

“Go to the bank!” Today’s top pick of the day just released

Why Arizona Will Win

Wake up throwing, continue throwing during the pregame meal, get on the team bus throwing, get off throwing, keep throwing in the locker room, and don’t stop firing away no matter what.

There’s no prayer of running against this defensive front – Arizona State was the only team able to come up with more than 100 yards, and QB Jayden Daniels only completed 4-of-18 passes in the 21-3 loss.

However, even it’s not always effective, and even if it’s not always efficient, the Wildcats need their quarterbacks to keep pushing the Ute secondary that can be beaten.

Washington kept it close with Jacob Eason throwing 52 times for 316 yards and four scores in the 33-28 loss. USC won when Matt Fink went wacky hitting 21-of-30 passes for 351 yards and three scores. Both of those games were on the road for the Utes.

The Wildcats have been able to push for more than 350 passing yards four times this season – they have to make this a firefight in the final home game of the year. At least …

What’s Going To Happen

The Arizona offense has to somehow keep up with what the Utah offense is about to do.

It’s been a disastrous run of five straight losses for Arizona after a 4-1 start, and it has to win this and beat Arizona State to go bowling. Utah won’t oblige.

The Ute lines will take over from the start, making up for a few big Arizona passing drives by rolling up and down the field with a balanced gameplan that won’t be slowed down.

The Utes need a win in this and a USC loss to UCLA to take the South and go off to play Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship, or they can win this and beat Colorado next week. The latter will happen.
