• Who will best run the football for Utah?
Inconclusive. James Poole picked up 47 yards on 12 carries and Williams got 45 on 12. Kelvin York was less effective, gaining 30 yards on 10 attempts. Williams rushed for the only touchdown, but he also fumbled.
• Do the Utes have enough help in their defensive backfield?
Chuckie Keeton feasted on Utah’s secondary, completing 31 of 40 passes for 314 yards and two touchdowns. But, then, Keeton is better than most quarterbacks the Utes will face. Whittingham called him a "Heisman-type player." Although Utah showed improvement later in the game, future opponents will look at that production through the air and take their shots at the back of the Ute defense.
