Washington lost their opener against Auburn but the fact that they did not embarrass themselves means that they are still a viable playoff option. Another loss and they are out and Utah is good enough to give it to them.
Utah might be the one place that no team wants to visit in the PAC 12. The Utes are never the best team but they have a way of getting you off your game, especially they are hosting. Despite cultural assumptions they are not very hospitable.
Washington lost to Auburn. It was an opportunity for the team and the conference but it is gone. They rebounded with an easy win against North Dakota but they better be ready or else the Utes will punch them in the mouth and possibly knock them out.
The loss to the Tigers could have gone either way. Quarterback Jake Browning did not have a great day and after a mediocre season last year perhaps he peaked too soon. He and Myles Gaskin should provide enough offense though.
There is extra pressure on Washington here as they don’t want to get off to a 0-1 start in the league and want to keep their playoff hopes alive. They have not covered in their last three against the Utes and could be looking ahead to Arizona State which is dangerous.
Utah has one game against an FCS team and one game against Northern Illinois and is tops in the in yards allowed. It is a small sample size but they have allowed the least yards of any program in the country. They are actually giving up less through the air than on the ground.
Tyler Huntley is an effective quarterback. He is a good athlete but could be a little sharper with the ball. Running back Zack Moss broke out last year and helps provide them with balance. Washington has a good defense and they are going to make it difficult for both.
Shutting down Weber State is a lot different than the Huskies but Utah is always strong on defense. They are especially strong up front where they always seem to have a couple of underrated NFL prospects on the line. They are going to make Washington earn everything.

I was not as high on Washington heading into the season as others and I think this one will be tight, the could lose.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Utah +6.5
The Huskies are not going to control this game…it is going to be a fight potentially won or lost on the final possession.
This number will definitely get a lot of teaser attention as you can drag through three or seven depending on which side you like. It might move as a result.
