Monson: Answers come for Utah, but the biggest question remains

< Previous Page

No big surprise that the Ducks are better than the Utes, who just two seasons back were the winners of only six games. Despite taking a victory from Oregon a season ago — Utah lost to the Ducks twice — it was a bigger surprise that the Utes had two chances to beat a better iteration of them now.

Didn’t happen. It could have happened, but it wouldn’t happen.

"It was a good game," Loveridge said. "Good battle. Good team."

He added that his side’s strong showing against the Ducks shocked none of the Utes:

"We knew we could play with them. We knew we could play with anybody in the league."

So, they can.

The question remains: Can they beat them?
