        So two of the writers basically admit that historical trends and record will beat out current Utah trends. Despite a Washington defense that doesn’t tackle well and gives tons of yards in the rush they will string it together tomorrow. 

        This kind of reminds me of SC game. Except SC had Heltons neck on the line and has superior talent across the board. While Washington may think it has superior talent to SC I don’t believe it. They certainly have the best coach in the conference that is a cause for us to concern ourselves with.

        Utah wins guys. This defense is relentless and Utah’s offense has unfinished business. Utah 31 Hardcore Huskies 9.

        I don’t know what to think anymore; I’m a nerve-racking mess.

        All indications point to a Utah victory…no question. The one constant is coaching in these game scenarios. Good vs. Great coach is my only concern. Players may be different, but the head coaches are the same and that does not work in Utah’s favor based on two decades of KW and CP going head to head all the way back to asst. coach days when CP was OC at BSU and KW at DC at Utah. Utes need to play a near perfect game on the field to neutralize the coaching advantage. That happens, Utes win by two scores.

          I don’t think near perfection will be needed. I don’t see Washington as that good. USC made plays when it mattered much to our dismay. Utah needs to make enough plays for it to matter in their favor and it will be an easy win. 

          The PAC12 just isn’t that good this year to expect perfection. On the road against Petersen Utah can get it done even with a hobbled Huntley. 

          I do think Eason and that Oline need to play near perfect to have success on Utah’s defense.

            Perfect in the sense of win the turnover margin, less penalties than UW, and a solid game plan on defense. I do think Ludwig is better than Hamden. KW can head coach the field management and let Ludwig do his thing up in the box. I would hope KW stomps over to the refs before the game and sends a clear message about calling a clean-consistent game for both teams. Some very bad calls have been called or not called in favor of UW when these teams play.

              Whitt won’t do that because his mantra of control the controllables.  PAC12 can’t  figure its s**t out in a week or years of poor officiating. They still don’t know what a hold is.

        34-21 Utes. Moss with the dagger at the end.

        Interesting to see the breakdown from their perspective.   For good reasons (they are fans, alums) they are going to slant toward UW but still the consensus is very close.  Reading that I get more convinced that Moss will get his yards and that the UU defense will stop their run game (56 yds/game that is impressive run D!!).  So the difference will come whether Utah can find success in the red zone – turn those yards into points (Utes may not win a FG battle) — and hang on to the ball — zero or maybe one turnover.   Otherwise UW will need a monster game from Eason and his WRs as USC did.

          One thing I read into was their ability to score on Oregon. Which I just don’t think Oregon compares to Utah. We will see this weekend again when USC gets in the 30’s again. They have got worst while Utah’s defense is literally dismantling teams.

        Last night my room was 316 in Vancouver and they upgraded me in Seattle to a room with number 319. So I’m with you on 31-9
