Utah football gets the week off to prepare for UCLA, but it won't be the typical bye week for the Utes.
Heading into next Thursday's showdown with the Bruins, Utah will have less time to ready itself than would be a normal week off.
That means the Utes will be getting down to business almost immediately, following a few off days to rid themselves of a few bumps and bruises.
In Utah's press conference on Monday morning, coach Kyle Whittingham spoke of the need to contain Brett Hundley, UCLA's hotshot quarterback, who is one of the better dual-threat guys in the country. Whittingham spoke of Travis Wilson's improvement as well as showing love for his secondary and defensive line – both of whom dominated BYU in Saturday's 20-13 rivalry game win in Provo.
