Utes know Oregon State passing game will test them

Asked about the progress of Utah's pass defense and coach Kyle Whittingham said on Monday he was still concerned.

"We've had some bright spots the first two weeks with the secondary and we've also had some not so good things happen back there so it is a work in progress," he said. "From techniques to fundamentals to coaches designing plays I think we've made progress but it's still something that is going to be improved upon week in and week out."

They'd better improve it fast then with Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion bringing the nation's third-highest passing offense to town.

Safety Eric Rowe said he was telling his teammates during the Weber State game they needed to keep working on techniques because the competition gets decidedly tougher this week.

He was definitely right in that estimation.
