It has been an up and down year for the Utah football team, but there remains a path to get to Vegas to defend their Pac-12 championship.

The Utes are No. 14 in the first College Football Playoff rankings.  They dropped a tough season-opening game at Florida, and lost in Week 7 at UCLA, winning every other game.

November 19th, the Utes visit Autzen Stadium and the Oregon Ducks, a game Duck fans have circled on their calendars since the off-season.  That Eugene visit is by far the toughest remaining game on Utah’s schedule, with home games preceding it against Arizona and Stanford, and a road trip to Boulder in the regular-season finale.

Josh Newman of the Salt Lake Tribune joined the BFT with John Canzano (Weekdays 3-6 p.m.) to give his perspective on the Utes entering the home stretch, their health as a program including the availability of quarterback Cam Rising and running back Tavion Thomas, and why the team should not overlook the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday.
