If Utah can get a steady passing game going, OSU will have trouble stopping it. Corners are our weak spots, and if you guys have a mobile QB it will be especially hard, since we'll be spying the QB run and therefore vulnerable to screens, deep balls, etc.
Conversely, DJ has been horribly inconsistent with the deep ball. We'll have to run it down Utah's throat early and often, and use play-action sparingly (for some goddamned reason Smith and Co. were using play-action on first down OVER AND OVER with DJ against WSU, and he was throwing into coverage, overthrowing, panicking from the rush, etc. It was a nightmare until OSU shifted the gameplan later in the game, but we ran out of time). Whatever our O-line did against WSU was a pale shadow of how they looked against SDSU, UC Davis, etc., which may have more to do with competition than gameplan.
