Oregon vs Utah Analysis and Prediction

The Utes will not have the star of last year’s Rose Bowl team, QB Cameron Rising, for the rest of the year. Rising did not play in his team’s first seven games, but he wasn’t ruled out for the year until after last week’s upset win over USC. On paper, Utah does not have the same caliber of skill position players as Oregon, as the Utes have been hit by one key injury after another. Both Rising and star tight end Brant Kuithe are out for the rest of the year, and coach Kyle Whittingham’s team is playing a recently converted safety at running back.

But Cal and USC have found out in the last two weeks that Sione Vaki is dangerous no matter where he lines up. While also playing safety, he ran for over 150 yards against the Golden Bears, then lit up the Trojans as a runner and receiver, with nine carries for 68 yards and 149 yards receiving and two TDs on just five catches.

Despite the toll injuries have taken on this roster, Utah is a brutally difficult opponent, especially at home. That means the Ducks will need to be on point to win or cover. Oregon has been impressive in every game this season, even its last-second loss to the Huskies, thanks to a balanced offense led by Nix. The Ducks have not played a defense like Utah’s, though. The battle between Oregon’s OL and talented RBs and Utah’s always-stingy front seven will be one of the most interesting in college football this weekend.

This game feels like a coin flip. Though it might be difficult to imagine Utah’s patchwork offense keeping up with Oregon, we’ve learned over the past few years that betting on anyone to win — much less comfortably — at Rice-Eccles is a terrible idea. Give me Utah and the points, though I do think Oregon will find a way to squeak out a victory.

One last note on why it’s risky to bet on the Ducks to cover, despite all the injury issues for the Utes: Utah has not lost at home since 2020, and it has won 29 of its last 30 at Rice-Eccles.

Pick: Utah (+6.5 at time of publishing)
