Kyle Whittingham always has Utah at the top of the Pac-12 and this season will be no different. After bringing in Charlie Brewer from Baylor, Chris Curry from LSU, and TJ Pledger from Oklahoma, the offense should improve drastically from its 53rd ranking in yardage a season ago behind the arm of Jake Bentley.
Expect big things from this Utah offense in 2021. But not in this game.
Oregon holds on for a tight, defensive-led win in Salt Lake City which keeps the Ducks in the race for the Pac-12 North title.
Final Score: Oregon 27, Utah 20 (9-2, 7-1)
The final game of the season might stand between Oregon and another Pac-12 North title as Oregon State comes to town, looking for another upset of the Ducks.
The 2020 season saw the Beavers upset the Ducks 41-38 in Corvallis and Oregon hasn’t forgotten the embarrassing rivalry defeat to a North bottom-dweller. The Ducks are going to wipe the floor with the Beavers this season despite them bringing back most of their starters.
Oregon State won’t be a problem in 2021.
Final Score: Oregon State 14, Oregon 38 (10-2, 8-1)
