Utah at San Jose State

Bartle- The Utes dominate the trenches this game, offense scores four touchdowns by halftime, and the starters are pulled after a series in the 3rd quarter. Huntley and Shyne continue to move the ball on offense and cruise to a victory. Utes win 52-13. 

Bodkin- The Utes continue to make progress on offense after figuring out the missing piece- the run game. I would not be shocked to see Utah's defense shutout San Jose State's offense.

Borg- Utah looks a little uneasy in its first quarter on the road. SJSU gets a touchdown on the first drive but then the D clamps down. Williams throws for 3 TDS & 0 interceptions, the combination of RBS run for 180 yards with McCormick leading the way with two runs over 20 yards. Utah 31-10 

Davidson- San Jose State showed they can put points on the board against an FCS team, but could only manage 10 points against Tulsa. The offense will clean up the turnovers and gain some confidence before heading into conference play. Utah 37-10

Dunn- Utah again goes vanilla on offense not wanting to expose too much of the playbook before USC. The Utes finally break the game open in the 3rd quarter and Tyler Huntley gets some more game experience as the game winds down. Utah 38 - SJSU 14

Durant- Utah hasn't lost to San Jose State since 1974. Offensive line continues their improvement and the Utes run for 200 yards. San Jose State is more the team that was blown out by Tulsa than scored 66 against Portland State. Utah 27 San Jose State 3.

Gorringe- Utah avoids the post rivalry game hangover and take care of business on the road against a San Jose State team that has given up a ton of points to some not so good football teams. Look for the Ute offense to explode this weekend. Utah 45 San Jose State 16

Sorensen- Utes win big as the offense finally comes alive. Utah 45 San Jose State 17

Swinney- The Utes are too big, strong, and fast for San Jose State to keep pace. Utah runs for over 250 yards and throws for another 250 as the Utes build a sizable lead before the backups yield a few late touchdowns to make it closer than it really is. Utah 48 SJSU 24
