Kevin Gemmell of the ESPN Pac-12 blog tells us why the Utah Utes have a shot in the conference’s South division.
He writes, “For starters, they are one of the few Pac-12 teams that got together and decided that playing defense might be a good idea. The offense, though sporadic (and a little undisciplined — seven false starts already), has shown the potential to be explosive. They can run the football. They can stop the run. And they can get to the quarterback. When your team checks those boxes, it has a fighting chance.”
