College Football Betting: Utah and Oregon offenses limp into Saturday's matchup

10.24.2017     09:03 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The up-tempo experiment for Utah appears to be officially scrapped after the Utes lost their third straight game. It looked promising early on with quarterback Tyler Huntley scampering around and making plays. But Huntley's reckless style led to a Week 4 injury and a return to former starter Troy Williams. Williams is not an efficient signal caller (53% completions) and thus not ideal to run any type of "up-tempo" scheme. Williams was however solid (16-of-27, 262 yards) in Utah's 28-27 loss to USC but Huntley was healthy enough to start last week against Arizona State and ended up throwing four interceptions. Three straight losses, zero continuity at the quarterback position, and a head coach who has made a career out of playing it close to the vest suggests the Utes may run the ball 60 times this weekend in Eugene. And speaking of offensive struggles, Oregon has scored only 31 points during its own three-game slide. The Ducks have all but completely ditched the forward pass (28 attempts, 107 yards last two games). Three weeks ago, this total would have likely been in the high 50's or low 60's. Instead, it opened 54 and was bet down to 52.


“It’s very concerning,” Whittingham said. “In the past, even though our numbers hadn’t been great, we’ve been a physical, run-the-ball-down-your-throat-with-some-play-action football team.

“Right now, we’re still searching for who we are. Seven games in, you say how can that be? I’m asking the same question. We have to figure out what we do best and hitch our wagon to that.”
