    We lose to USC and UW.

    That's 8-4, and it doesn't seem too crazy.
    I'd love to see that.

    One thing we can do but haven't seen is a stretch RPO. I think we will see more of those on Friday.

    Where Huntley can hand off or run. If Huntley runs to the outside, he can then keep it or throw.

    I'd bet that is the whole "we haven't opened up the offense yet" is coming from.

    We've only run about 7 plays and been amazing (for Utah) offensively.

    I still think we are a 7 to 8 win team, but that's more schedule related than talent related.

    Hell, maybe we luck out and beat Stanford and miss Cal.

    I'd like to see more of the straight option. I thought that worked well on Saturday.

    I would just like to see better o-line play, which should give Taylor/Huntley a lot more options.

    FPI update. After winning in the desert, ESPN finally believes we will play in a bowl game this season:

    Utah's first 3 years in the PAC-12 ... 9 wins - 18 losses 33.3 winning %

    Since then ... 17-11 60.7%

    that's pretty damn good

    Matt Gay granted another year of eligibility.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    New ESPN FPI. We actually moved up with the loss.

    http://www.espn.com/college-football...=254&year=2017

    They still have us finishing 6-6 with UCLA, ASU, and CU being close games and USC, WSU, UW, and Oregon being lopsided losses.

    Depending on Huntley's health, we could be looking at Utah vs. UVA in the Sun Bowl.

    ESPN FPI moves us up to 43. They have ASU at 44.

    Utah now picked to finish 7-5 (they moved UCLA to the win category).
