One of the most underrated games of the day will take place late on Saturday night when the UCLA Bruins head on the road to face the Utah Utes in a matchup that could help determine who wins the Pac-12 South. UCLA is an underdog by nearly a touchdown, but it seems likely they will have their playmaking quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson.
Thompson-Robinson left late in last week’s game against the Oregon Ducks with a shoulder injury as the Bruins attempted a comeback in a 34-31 loss. The injury occurred on the final drive, and Ethan Garbers entered the game but threw the game-sealing interception.
It sounds like Thompson-Robinson will be good to go, and Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said his team has been prepared for him to be in the lineup. On the season, Thompson-Robinson has completed 59.4% of his passes for 1,639 yards with 14 touchdowns and three interceptions.
If he is unable to play, Garbers would likely get the start. He has completed 4-7 passes for 40 yards with no touchdowns and an interception.
