A PAC 12 showdown in Salt Lake City, Utah takes place Saturday afternoon when the Oregon State Beavers come into town and face off with the Utah Utes.
The Utah Utes are looking to bounce back from getting absolutely dominating performance by USC, getting beat 42-24 in California.
The Beavers are in a tough spot here, losers of their last 4 going into Salt Lake trying to turn a dismal season right around.
The Utes led by Heisman candidate Devontae Booker are trying to get back on track after get stomped on, on the road. With QB Taylor Wilson throwing 4 picks including 2 picks for touchdowns, the Utes will be hungry and out for blood this saturday trying to salvage a shot at the college football playoff.
If the Utes want any shot at competing with the Ohio State’s and the Alabama’s they will need to get Devontae Booker going again after he rushed for almost 900 yards in the first 7 games including 9 TD’s to go along with that. Pretty dominant stats coming from a running back in this day and age, look for those numbers to continue when Oregon State comes into town.
Oregon State Beavers
Oregon State is short on playmakers and any sort of fire power as well. With a weak defense as well the Utes are going to have a lot of fun here in Salt Lake City.
The one bright spot for the Beavers is Seth Collins who is not only the leading passer but the leading rusher as well.
The best part about this is that he is a true Freshman. Obviously a lot of potential in a big arm that Collins has as well as being a dual threat at the QB position.
This will be a great story as he developes, but in the meantime he is going to have to face a very stout Utah defensive unit and try to do some damage.
Losing 4 straight is never fun and with a first year coach at the helm it is obviously concerning, with Coach Riley bolting for Nebraska the Oregon State football program looks like it is in dissaray. Look for the Utes to really take it to the Beavers this weekend.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Prediction
For Utah this is a huge turnaround game after a huge loss at USC, the Utes are a resiliant team though and should bounce back uite nicely at home this weekend. Oregon State really are one dimensional and only have Seth Collins to really rely on which makes them one dimensional, and that is not a good sign for a very good Utes team.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Utah ATS
Utah should have no problem putting points on the board as well as stopping a one dimensional team in Oregon State.
