Utah coach Kyle Whittingham isn't too worried the close loss to USC will affect his team against BYU, believing the Utes are already past it.
The Utes watched film of the game Monday so they could make adjustments, then started prepping for BYU.
"We had a great practice," Whittingham said. "They are revved up and ready to go and I am sure it is the same down in Provo."
The Utes had trouble getting over losses last year, allowing the 47-7 drubbing they took at TCU to lead to a subpar performance and 28-3 loss at Notre Dame.
But the nature of the rivalry game has taken care of any concerns that might happen again.
"There is no need for a coach to get a team up for this game," Whittingham said. "The game takes care of itself."
