EUGENE, Ore. — For No. 10 Utah, the path to another Pac-12 championship runs through Autzen Stadium.
The Utes, who some counted out of the Pac-12 race after a loss at UCLA on Oct. 8, visit No. 12 Oregon Saturday (8:30 p.m. MST, ESPN).
“We’ve been waiting for this game. Obviously, every week has been important and we’ve had to win but this is the one, man. We’ve got to dot our I’s and cross our T’s and make sure we come to play.” — Utah Karene Reid
Utah (8-2, 6-1) needs to win two more games — against the Ducks (8-2, 6-1) and next week at Colorado — to clinch a spot in the Pac-12 championship game in Las Vegas on Dec. 2.
“We’ve got to get through (Oregon) to get to the Pac-12 championship. That’s our goal. We’ve just got to make sure we’re doing everything we can do to be ready for this week,” said quarterback Cam Rising. “It’s our Super Bowl. We’ve got to go out there and execute. It’s a good football team and we’ve got to make sure that our preparation is where it needs to be and at a high level and doing everything we can to be ready to go.”
Meanwhile, two other Pac-12 contenders No. 7 USC and No. 16 UCLA square off in Los Angeles Saturday.
