Utah Utes | Pac-12 (South)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+440), Win Conference (+2000)
SSA Model Pick: Conference (Low Confidence)
Utah has always played well for Kyle Whittingham, who enters his 14th season as the head coach for the Utes. Huntley should be improved at quarterback and the Utes will be solid on defense. While they don’t have the most talented roster, this team will compete for the South this year and could take the conference title.

Win Total Analysis
7 wins (-110/-110)
SSA Model Pick: Over (Low Confidence)
This is a number Whittingham has gone over in three of the previous four seasons. Utah’s non-conference schedule includes Weber State, Northern Illinois, and BYU. Seven wins is likely, but it’s difficult to see fewer than seven wins for this team.
