#14 Utah Utes at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Line: Utah -6

Utah is coming off its only loss of the season and it was a whooping. They got beat by TCU 47-7. That is the reason they fell from #4 ten spots to #14 in the rankings. Notre Dame got an extra week to prepare for this one and it was much needed after losing starting Junior QB Dayne Crist.

Stats to consider:

Utah Utes:

  • Utah is 8-1 with a 5-1 MWC record.
  • They are 4-0 on the road.
  • Points against per game: 17.8 (14th)
  • Points for per game: 41 (9th)
  • Passing yards a game: 245.9 (41st)
  • Rushing yards a game: 175.9 (36th)

Noter Dame Fighting Irish:

  • Notre Dame is 4-5 this season.
  • They are 3-4 at home this season.
  • Points against per game: 24.9 (62nd)
  • Points for per game: 26 (72nd)
  • Passing yards a game: 288.6 (17th)
  • Rushing yards  a game: 113.4 (100th)

What to watch for:

  • The Notre Dame starting QB. As stated earlier, Dayne Crist is out for season. Freshman QB Tommy Rees stepped in last week and went 33-54 for 334 yards 4 TDs and 3 Ints. Rees is arguably the favorite to start but a lot of people want to see Junior QB Nate Montana. You guessed right, Joe Montana’s son.
  • Utah QB Jordan Wynn has 1,579 yards 14 TDs and 8 Ints this season. Last week Wynn was 16-35 for 148 yards with a TD and 2 Ints. This is the second straight week Wynn has failed to throw for more than 150 yards.
  • Utah Senior RB Eddie Wide leads the ground game with 523 yards and 9 TDs. Wide broke a 5 game TD streak last week when he was held to 9 rushes for 32 yards.

Sports picks revolve around a leader. The leader on nearly every football team is the QB. With Notre Dame down their starting QB, I see them struggling in this one. I look for Utah to try to solidify itself for the postseason with a bounce back win. People forget that this is still a very good football team that has went on the road and gotten some big victories away form home.
