Junior defensive end Nate Orchard having breakout season for Utes.

< Previous Page

Utah’s defense has played well in similar recent matchups. Orchard sees no reason as to why the defense can’t do it again on Saturday.

"Going into that environment is going to be fun and totally different," he said. "But we know it takes a whole defense to get to the quarterback. We’ll be ready."
