< Previous Page

No one seems to have written off the Utes. And everyone seems to be waiting, just as Utah fans are, for the breakthroughs to come.

"I’d guess everybody in the league knows you’re in for a physical battle against Utah, but it’s a league where you need some real difference-makers offensively," said Bud Withers, who covers Washington State for the Seattle Times. "Obviously the development of Travis Wilson is going to be huge in that regard."
