Utah has had two players win Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honors. But none on offense.
Playing Arizona this week, that could change in a hurry.
The UA defense just keeps on giving. Three of Arizona’s first six conference opponents have produced the league’s offensive player of the week. And it wasn’t like those winners just had a nice game. Each had a record-setting performance.
So, Utah’s John White should be dreaming of glory Saturday afternoon at Arizona Stadium.
He is the nation’s 15th-leading rusher, averaging 114.38 yards per game. He has rushed for at least 150 yards in half of Utah’s eight games.
“Very quick. Can get to the perimeter very, very fast,” Arizona interim coach Tim Kish said.
“They have a big, thick fullback in there (253-pound Shawn Asiata) who does a great job of blocking for him.”
