And even if the Utes were not actually facing USC, everyone’s attempt to compare the Utes with Fresno State’s season-opening opponent was inevitable. Utah’s 59-27 victory matches up well with everything the Trojans had done against Fresno State — right from the start, and right up front. Any hope the Bulldogs held of competing in this game...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Utah totaled 526 yards against Fresno State in Saturday’s 59-27 blowout at Rice-Eccles. To put that in perspective, Christensen averaged 238 per game against DeRuyter’s defenses at Air Force and Wyoming. “Really pleased with the offense,” said head coach Kyle Whittingham after the game. “The tempo, the execution, it was really clean.” A...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

It’s not a Park City ski trip with his son. He’s here on business. “Going back to play a really good football team in a hostile environment with a very young football team,” said the Fresno State offensive coordinator, who served in the same capacity at Utah, in addition to coaching running backs, quarterbacks and tight ends from 2005 to 2011.

The defense was underwhelming, allowing the Bengals to rack up 179 rushing yards, a weakness the coaches and players have stated all week they must address. The Utes this week get Fresno State at home, a team that is better than it showed last week in a 52-13 shellacking at USC.

Unlike last week, fans aren't flying in blind. Some of you may have tuned in to watch the 52-13 thrashing the Bulldogs suffered at the hands of USC. The offense looked messy, and the defense couldn't slow the Trojans' march. The question now is this: Is USC just that good, or does Fresno State really have that much work to do? To shed some light on the answer, I asked Fresno Bee reporter Bryant-Jon Anteola five q...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

On Friday night, it was a big deal. Not because Class 3A Judge Memorial lost 27-14 to Class 4A Woods Cross, but because of how it happened. After getting out to a 14-0 lead, the Bulldogs ended up falling to the Wildcats thanks to resiliency on Woods Cross’ part and just plain ol’ attrition. “They’re a great football team.

The Utah Utes’ defense had begun with two three-and-outs against Idaho State, pushing back the Bengals offense for sacks and negative yards. They looked invincible. And that was when the mistakes started. While a 56-14 scoreline leaves plenty of good feelings about a performance, Utah linebacker Jason Whittingham spent Monday afternoon’s rap session with the media talking about what the defense could’ve done better.

Seconds after the Pine View Panthers executed a perfect onside kick to put the ball back in the hands of All-State quarterback and BYU commit Kody Wilstead, the Judge Memorial coach asked his defense to give him one more series. “I need you to play your hearts out,” Cordova pleaded.
