The Utes are in Boulder looking for their 8th straight win over the Buffs, and to go a game above .500 in Pac-12 play. Winning on the road in the Pac-12 is tough, especially in Boulder, where the Buffs took down Arizona and ASU a couple weeks back, the same week that Utah got swept by both of those schools.
The recipe is simple for Utah, rebound and don’t turnover the ball. I don’t think Colorado has the talent to run away from a team, so the Utes just have to be smart and not let CU have a bunch of extra possessions. As always, we know Utah will go though some kind of offensive drought, but they have to find a way to minimize it, because things like that can kill you on the road. I’m very intereted to see how Utah handles Colorado’s size, because the size of other teams has given Utah fits.
Here’s hoping the Utes can get another W tonight.
