The Utes come into this matchup playing better overall, and the Bruins will need to put together two back-to-back masterpieces after a brilliant game helped them fend off Washington last week. Utah’s defense should help keep tame UCLA’s high-scoring offense and keep the game relatively low in regards to points on the board. With that in mind, the Utes should be able to come up with significant plays in the backfield, helping lead them to a win on Saturday.
