SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – ESPN College Gameday analyst David Pollack is expecting a big season from the Utah football program during the 2021 season.

David Pollack and the College Gameday crew had their first show of the 2021 season with Week 0 getting underway on Saturday when the guys gave some predictions.

Lee Corso, Desmond Howard, Kirk Herbstreit and Pollack gave their sleeper teams ahead of the 2021 season. Pollack picked the Utes.

“I like the Utes,” Pollack said. “You talk about transfers, they always win on the line of scrimmage then you bring in a transfer quarterback and you bring in running backs from Oklahoma and LSU. They have a lot of transfers and are always physical.”

Out of the four picks from the guys for their sleepers, three of them were from the Pac-12. Desmond Howard picked Oregon. Pollack went with Utah. Lee Corso selected USC and Kirk Herbstreit is going with Notre Dame.

Utah will kickoff the 2021 season on Thursday, September 2 against Weber State at Rice-Eccles Stadium. The game will begin at 5:30 p.m. MDT and will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
