By-The-Numbers: Utah

By-The-Numbers is back from that early fainting spell in the first quarter against Cal. After that 90-yard TD, I lost consciousness trying to re-calculate the extrapolations. College football can be hazardous to one's health! Anyway, now it's time to visit the pesky upstart Utes, and those living in the Beehive State know how to keep their numbers a secret, if you know that I mean!
