Devontae Booker vs The Oregon Ducks Defense Last season Devontae Booker excelled as a Wide Receiver for Utah. Against Oregon he pulled in eight passed for one-hundred ten yards and a touchdown. He also ran for sixty-five yards. In 2015 he is doing his work on the ground, rushing for three-hundred forty five yards and four touchdowns in the Utes first three games. It will be up to the front seven of the Oregon Ducks to try to keep him in check. If he is able to get outside as a Wide Receiver, Oregon may have a problem.
Of course, the deciding factor on how Utah will use Booker comes down to who will be the Starting Quarterback. At this point we have talked about it, but we do not yet know if Travis Wilson will return from a shoulder injury or if Kendal Thompson will get his second start of the season against the Oregon Ducks. Booker is certainly one to watch for the entire night for Utah.
