Fans Make Their BYU-Utah Predictions
(KUTV) Fans voiced their opinions on the outcome of this weekend's BYU-Utah game. Plus, the quarterbacks Blaine Fowler and Frank Dolce give us their opinions and predictions for the big game.
Both Fowler and Dolce are now broadcasters for their respective schools and both played in the Holy War.
For BYU they come in as a 4 point favorite and predictably, Fowler says the play of the quarterbacks should determine who wins the game.
Defensively, look for Utah's Star Lotulelei to be key in stopping the Cougar run game. But the combination of Riley Nelson and Cody Hoffman will test the Utah secondary, which could be without defensive back Eric Rowe.
Meantime, there has been plenty of speculation about the health of Utah running back John White. He was not available to the media earlier in the week, leading some to believe that the Utes' leading rusher from a year ago is hurt.
However, Dolce believes that White will play whether he’s injured of not, saying that tailback battled injuries all of last season and should be ready to go.
Saturday's game is scheduled for an 8 p.m. kick off and can be seen on ESPN 2.
