Kyle Whittingham's recent success at Utah is going to position him to be a candidate for some interesting jobs next offseason. Should be fun to watch, in the meantime here's how he's positioned his program to benefit from a down year in the Pac-12.
Utah is the Michigan State of the Pac-12 right now. They're oriented around playing great defense, anchored by good DL play, and run-centric on offense with multiple formations but an overall emphasis on building everything off the run game and Devontae Booker.
With all of the redshirted upperclassmen they have in the starting line-up, that makes for a nice recipe for college success and a chance to win 10 or more games when the teams with better talent in your league are in utter turmoil.
