The Utes are coming off a huge win over a very good USC team and are ready to fight for their spot in the Pac-12 championship race. While the Cougars boast a highly-ranked defense, Utah QB Cameron Rising has only been improving in the past weeks, and should be able to push some extra yardage with his arm and his legs. Utah to cover.
