What To Watch For

– Utah’s preseason AP Top 25 ranking of 14 is the highest pre-season ranking the Utes have ever received entering a season.

– Last season, BYU had a 27-7 lead late in the third quarter before Utah then scored 28 unanswered to come away with a victory.

– Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham is 11-3 against BYU as head coach of the Utes.

– BYU sophomore quarterback Zach Wilson threw for 204 passing yards on 20-of-29 attempts and ran for 73 rushing yards.

– Utah running back Zack Moss, a pre-season Doak Walker candidate, returns for his senior season with the Utes. Moss is 572 yards away from passing Eddie Johnson as Utah’s all-time leading career rusher.

– Utah’s defensive line was voted by College Football Insider Phil Steele as the No. 1 defensive line in the country for the 2019 season.

– BYU’s defense in 2018 was 18th nationally in total defense allowing only 324.1 yards per game.
