Dawg Preview: #13 Utah Utes vs #2 Washington Huskies

Updated: Nov 9, 2023

The Washington Huskies come into this game undefeated at 9-0 and fighting for a spot in the College Football Playoffs. Utah on the other hand is going on the road to play the spoiler and the shot to defend their Pac-12 Title. Both of these teams are coming off of a game where the offenses exploded 55 for Utah vs Arizona State and 52 for Washington against USC. This game has all the makings for another classic for the folding Pac-12.

Players to watch - Washington Huskies

Dillon Johnson Running Back Washington - Everyone in the country knows Michael Penix Jr. but last week this running back blasted onto the national scene. He had 256 yards rushing with 4 touchdowns against USC. The running game will be pivotal against a pretty good defense in Utah to open up the passing game. Utah is fifth in the country against the run so it will be a tough task, but he should be up to the challenge.

Edefuan Ulofoshio Linebacker Washington - Comes into this game with 59 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 1 interception. The Washington front seven will have to be up to the task of stopping the solid Utah rushing attack averaging 192.7 yards a game.

Players to watch - Utah Utes

Bryson Barnes Quarterback Utah - On the season he has thrown for 930 yards, 8 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. His best game though on the season came last week with four touchdowns and zero interceptions against Arizona State. With the potent Washington offense, he will have to have a repeat performance to keep Utah in this game to give them a shot at the upset.

Cole Bishop Safety Utah- The secondary of Utah will be tested by Michael Penix and the plethora of weapons on the outside. He has 46 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 interceptions, and 1 forced fumble on the season. He will have to be there to keep the shots that Washington will take down the field to a minimum and possibly force some turnovers to help Utah come out on top.


This game will come down to the wire and they say defense wins championships. Utah has the better defense coming into this game and normally I would side with the better defense but not in this game. While I do believe that Utah will lead a good portion of this game Michael Penix will show his 'DAWG' mentality and will lead Washington to a last-minute score to secure this game.

Washington wins 42-38
