Staff Predictions: Utah

Arizona will face Utah on Saturday and once again makes its picks.

Blake Keathley: My head says Utah, but my heart says Arizona. UA excelled against UCLA, a one dimensional rushing offense much like Utah, and I think its able to replicate that effort Saturday.

In the end, Nick Foles finds a way to win this game for a Senior class in need of a big, Homecoming victory.

Arizona 16, Utah 13

Overall: 6-2

Jason Nimrichter: Utah's one dimensional offensive attack will not be a match for Tim Kish's eagle flex defense. Utah will have to throw the ball through the air in order to win and the Utes simply aren't reliable enough with their passing game to put up enough points to win. Nick Foles has a big game through the air and the UA offense is able to control the tempo on its way to victory.

Arizona 28, Utah 10

Overall: 6-2

Jason Scheer: It is a no brainer that Arizona will play the double flex. Utah's quarterback is below average and the offense is similar to UCLA's in terms of what it brings to the table.

Arizona's offense is going to be challenged in man coverage and I for one am excited to see how it responds. My guess is that it responds well enough.

Arizona 24, Utah 13

Overall: 5-3
