Utah QB spot is back up for grabs

< Previous Page

As for the rest of the team, Whittingham said not one aspect, from any phase of the game to coaching, was good against the Aggies on Friday.

The main concern is the offensive line, which performed poorly against the Aggies. The Utes moved guard Sam Brenner to left tackle during Friday's game and the senior will start there Saturday.

Junior Vyncent Jones, the backup center, will start at right guard. Senior Miles Mason, who was starting at left tackle, is listed as the backup at right tackle now behind starter Percy Taumoelau and freshman Kala Friel.

Whittingham acknowledged the line played surprisingly poor.

"It's still a work in progress, unfortunately," he said. "We'd like it to be solidified but we haven't been able to do that. We are trying to get the continuity and right combination. We thought we had the right combination but it turns out we didn't, we have weak links that have to get fixed."

Another spot up for grabs could be the free safety position where starter Eric Rowe is questionable with a strained hamstring. Sophomores Terrell Reese, Tyron Morris-Edwards and junior Michael Walker are competing for the starting role if Rowe can't play Saturday.
