Utah has shown plenty of bite as a road underdog

utah_utes

The Utah Utes are 6-4 SU and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a road underdog. The Utes will try to put together another strong road effort this Saturday when they visit the Washington Huskies.

SHARK BITES
  • Utah is 16-4 SU and 14-6 ATS in its last 20 games in Week 12.
  • Washington is 6-0 SU in its last six games at home.
  • The total has gone OVER in Utah’s last three games against Washington.

Coming into this season with three straight nine-win seasons and opening the year with a 4-0 SU and ATS record, the Utes appeared to be on their way to a strong 2017. Instead, injuries and inconsistent play have caused Utah to go just 1-5 SU and 2-3-1 ATS over its last six games. Utah enters this game with a 1-3 SU and 2-2 ATS record against Washington since joining the Pac-12.

Washington fell to 8-2 SU and 6-4 ATS in last Friday night’s 30-22 loss at Stanford. The loss knocked the Huskies out of contention for a College Football Playoff spot and likely ended the team’s chances at a trip to the Rose Bowl as well. Coming off a season with 43 touchdown passes and 3,430 passing yards, Jake Browning has been underutilized this season with only 16 touchdown passes and 2,097 passing yards thus far.
