There may be no other team quietly dominating the way Utah has so far this season, which could be a big reason why the Utes are 2-0 ATS on the road, which has brought their road ATS record to 8-1 in their past nine away from Rice-Eccles Stadium. Utah will look to continue their road dominance when they visit the faltering USC Trojans Saturday.
- Utah is 8-0 SU in their last eight games.
- The total has gone UNDER in four of the last five between Utah and USC.
- USC quarterback Cody Kessler has thrown four interceptions in the past two games.
Utah remained the only undefeated team in the Pac-12 with a victory over Arizona State last week. Throughout his career with the Utes, quarterback Travis Wilson has dazzled fans with his play one week only to implode the next, but he has limited those mistakes this season with only two games in which he threw more interceptions than touchdowns.
Things have been a mess at USC over the past several weeks with the team firing coach Steve Sarkisian after his recent troubles with alcohol. Another loss was tallied last week when the Trojans gave up 17 points in the fourth quarter, due in large part to quarterback Cody Kessler’s two interceptions in the final frame.
