News came late Friday Afternoon that the team Oregon would be facing on Saturday will be playing without a big key in its offense. Starting Quarterback Travis Wilson, who has thrown 16 touchdowns this season will be on the sidelines recovering from a concussion. The Utah Offense will turn to Sophomore Adam Schulz, who was highlighted in a piece from October in the Salt Lake Tribune. In Schulz the Utes lose Wilson’s mobility, but potentially gain a stronger arm.
When Utah’s Defense is on the field it will be a different story. The Utes have more sacks (33) than any other team in the country. The big question is whether it will be enough to disrupt the Oregon Offense. Watch out for Utah on Special Teams. Last week they punted a ball 70 yards on Arizona State, but ultimately lost the game 20-10.
For the season Utah Sophomore Quarterback Adam Schulz is 22 for 45, good for 247 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
