Wilson is coming off a four-touchdown game against Oregon. Britain Covey and Devontae Booker have combined for 331 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Kenneth Scott has 12 receptions.

Jared Norris leads the Utes with 32 tackles, Pita Taumoepenu has three sacks and Marcus Williams has three interceptions. Tim Patrick and Evan Moeai are questionable.
The Golden Bears are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games in October. The Utes are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The home team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
Cal is a pretty team that loves to throw the ball around and take plays off defensively. Utah is a physical team that's going to punch you in the face and run the ball down your throat. I've seen this movie time and time again. The Utah Utes are going to roll in this game and win by double digits.
