At No. 20, Utah ranks as high as it has in the AP poll since December 2010, but nonetheless is favored by just three in Corvallis on Thursday night. One good reason: Utah hasn’t beaten Oregon State in Corvallis since 1991, when current cornerbacks coach Sharrieff Shah recorded 12 tackles, four sacks and tw...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

It would be a huge boost to have Tevin Carter, who exited the UCLA game early after picking off Brett Hundley for six. He also missed the game against Washington State, and the limbo of his health status has become a popular topic at press conferences.

No unbeatens. Everyone has a loss. Every Pac-12 team is flawed. The question of the season will be who will be least flawed by the end of year? In the College Football Playoff era, it's going to be dicey for any team to make it to the big show with two losses. There's still six unbeatens in college football, and many more teams with just one loss. In the Pac-12, that includes Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Arizona, Arizona State ... and Utah.
