This is the beauty and the curse of playing in the Pac-12 Conference.
Utah suffered it's most disheartening loss of the season two days ago against Arizona. The Utes may have lost quarterback Travis Wilson for at least a week. They may have to press a true freshman into service, and they are left to lament on a running back going for almost 250 yards against them - on the ground alone.
So what's the reward? You got it. Playing against USC in Los Angeles.
Few conferences around the country challenge you like the Pac-12 does with it's grinder of a schedule. Utah coach Kyle Whittingham speaks on the loss and what's ahead for the Utes, and what has to be done if the program wants to notch its fifth victory of the season.
