Kyle-Whittingham
Rain or snow, one thing is clear: the Utah football team is going to find a way to win. After falling behind — and seeing Chase Hansen kicked out of the game on a bogus targeting call — the Utes literally "weathered the storm" as they cruised to a 30-7 road...
Utah_vs_Oregon_2018
As Kyle Whittingham would say: "Next man up." And that's exactly what Utah did against Oregon Saturday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Rice-Eccles-Stadium
Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley did it all. The junior out of Dania, Florida had a game to remember as he threw two touchdowns, ran for a score and also hauled in a 58-yard touchdown pass to lead Utah past Arizona, 42-10, Friday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium. After upsetting then-No. 14 Stanford...

BYU - Squally Canada
BYU's loss to No. 11 Washington brings up a good question. With an offense that continues to struggle, why doesn't the Cougar offense utilize more trick plays? While the Huskies have one of the top defenses in the country, the fact that BYU couldn't get past midfield in the second...

Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book and senior wide receiver Miles Boykin teamed up to lead the 8th-ranked Irish to a 38-17 home victory over No. 7 Stanford Saturday night.
