Is Weber State ready to get physical with the Utah Lines?
Weber State isn’t going to get physical with the Utah lines. The Utes struggled to get going in 2020 – it was the last Power Five program to start the season – and they weren’t able to get the passing game going.
What is Weber State’s record against Utah?
Weber State returns a boatload of playmakers on offense and is the early favorite to win the Big Sky Conference after capturing the league title in the spring. Utah is 5-0 versus Weber State all-time. The two teams met most recently in 2018, and the Utes came away with a 41-10 victory.
Where does Josh Davis rank all-time at Weber State?
No player is more integral to Weber State’s success on offense than Josh Davis. The two-time All-America running back ranks fourth in school history with 2,884 career rushing yards and eighth all-time with 3,711 career all-purpose yards.
Will Utah win the Pac-12 South in 2021?
Utah won back-to-back Pac-12 South division titles in 2018 and 2019 and is a prime contender with USC and Arizona State to claim the top spot in 2021. Utes head coach Kyle Whittingham said in fall camp that this year’s team reminds him of the 2019 squad.
When Weber State Has the Ball
No player is more integral to Weber State’s success on offense than Josh Davis. The two-time All-America running back ranks fourth in school history with 2,884 career rushing yards and eighth all-time with 3,711 career all-purpose yards. Davis led the Big Sky in the spring with 77.2 rushing yards per game.
When Utah Has the Ball
Charlie Brewer edged out Cameron Rising as the starting quarterback after a spirited battle in fall camp. Brewer certainly has the pedigree to give Utah’s offense a little extra punch. He spent four seasons at Baylor, where he threw for 9,700 yards and 65 touchdowns while making 39 career starts.
Utah has not lost to a current Big Sky Conference team since 1993. That’s unlikely to change against Weber State. The Utes have a dangerous combination of speed, athleticism, and experience on both sides of the ball.
