Latest News
10/04/2012 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: USC at Utah, Oct. 4 -- The Trojans are making their first trip to Salt Lake City since 1917, when USC blasted Utah 51-0. The Utes are an impressive 22-2-1 in home games after bye weeks all-time, and are 6-1 under coach Kyle Whittingham following byes. The loss, however, came last year against Washington. The teams have played each other in a pair of bowl games in their histories, with USC winning the 1993 Freedom Bowl 28-21 and the Utes winning the 2001 Las Vegas Bowl 10-6. KEYS TO THE GAME: The Utes need a fast start to get the Rice-Eccles Stadium crowd into the game from the outset and keep the team emotionally charged. If they can control the line of scrimmage early and get the upper hand, they'll be able to withstand a big play by the Trojans and keep the pressure on the USC defense. If the Trojans get a quick score or seize early momentum, the Utes may lack the firepower to rally. - The Sports Xchange
