The Huskies are on the cusp of a great season but with Washington State breathing down their neck in the PAC 12 North they can’t afford even the slightest slip up…and that is just to win the conference.
They are also in great position to get into the playoffs for sure.
Utah is in a similar spot in the PAC 12 South, though not with the playoff implications…at least not yet (who knows if they beat Washington).
In their case Colorado is the one applying the pressure. Who would have thought the two newbies would grow up so fast.
Since scuffling in their conference opener against Arizona the Huskies have been impressive in beating up their opponents.
Oregon and Stanford did not put up much of a fight but there are still teams that can reasonably ruin the season for Washington. Statistically the Huskies might be the best team in the nation.
They are fourth in scoring and 6th in points allowed. Put those together and you have an average margin of victory of 34ppg. This might be the toughest game they have all season though.
He is not getting the hype of Lamar Jackson but Jake Browning might be the best QB in college football.
He has a sick 26/2 ratio and even though he is not much of a runner he has another four scores on the ground.
The Dubs are far from one-dimensional though thanks to Myles Gaskin.
He is averaging more than 100ypg even though he has only exceeded 20 carries just once all season.
In terms of talent/potential the Utes are not up there with Washington but their only blemish on the season is a road loss to Cal. They are very difficult to beat at home, just ask USC, another talented team.
This is a program that just keeps getting it done year after year.
RB Joe Williams is about the best story in college football. He essentially retired but when they needed him he was back in uniform.
Last week he rushed for 332 yards against UCLA. That is not exactly Cal-Poly. That was a single game school record.
Utah is a solid defensive team.
They make it hard for you to run the ball and then try to pin their ears back when it comes time to pass.
Lowell Lotulelei is expected to play at the next level like his brother and DE Hunter Dimick is back to showing the form he did when he racked up 10 sacks as a sophomore.
Nothing is easy against Utah, especially when they are playing at home.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Prediction
It says a lot about how dominant the Huskies have been with this line.
For what it is worth Utah visited Washington last year and won by 11 on the road. Is that fuel for revenge or an indication of something else.
This will be a nice test to see just how much the Huskies have turned the corner.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Washington -10
Taking the home dog, when the spread is this big and they are such a solid team certainly feels quite right. However, whenever I see Washington I am impressed.
They are really fast on offense and defense and maybe no team is playing with as much confidence as they are right now. I am going to ride that in this one.
