Utah Utes vs Texas Longhorns 12/31/2019
Utah Utes hope to live up to their billing of being one of the top teams this season. They have won 11 of their last 13 games but fell short of making the College Football playoffs. This was their loss to Oregon in the Pac-12 championship game. Tyler Huntley will be tasked to hold the offense together once more for Utah. He has thrown for 2,966 yards, 18 touchdowns, and four interceptions so far this season. Their defense is also expected to give Texas problems. Utah has held opponents to just 13.2 points this season.
Players to watch:
T. Huntley QB (205 CMP 278 ATT 2966 YDS 73.7 CMP% 10.7 AVG 83 LNG 18 TD 4 INT 19 SACK -113 SYL 181.8 RTG), Z. Moss RB (219 ATT 1359 YDS 6.2 AVG 91 LNG 15 TD), D. Brumfield RB (59 ATT 263 YDS 4.5 AVG 30 LNG 2 TD), B. Kuithe TE (31 REC 572 YDS 18.5 AVG 69 LNG 6 TD), B. Thompson WR (17 REC 452 YDS 26.6 AVG 82 LNG 3 TD).
Texas hopes to ride on the momentum of winning back-to-back games. Though they fell short of competing for the conference title, a win over the Utes would be something. Sam Ehlinger will lead the offense once more. This season, he has averaged 3,462 yards, 29 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. A flaw for the Longhorns may be their defense. They are allowing the opposition 28.9 points per game, numbers they cannot afford to give the Utes.
Players to watch:
S. Ehlinger QB (284 CMP 436 ATT 3462 YDS 65.1 CMP% 7.9 AVG 75 LNG 29 TD 9 INT 32 SACK -180 SYL 149.7 RTG), K. Ingram RB (131 ATT 745 YDS 5.7 AVG 68 LNG 6 TD), R. Johnson QB (117 ATT 600 YDS 5.1 AVG 57 LNG 7 TD), D. Duvernay WR (103 REC 1294 YDS 12.6 AVG 75 LNG 8 TD), B. Eagles WR (30 REC 518 YDS 17.3 AVG 73 LNG 6 TD).
