COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Utah is 4-2 ATS L6 as a home dog. Last year: USC (-8) over Utah, 23-14. Salt Lake City is a tough place to play if you haven’t spent time in the altitude along with the cooler weather (mid 50’s). The Trojans did rebound with a 27-9 home win over California after losing to Stanford, 21-14 on Sept. 15. Utah fell at Arizona State on Sept. 22, 37-17 though they did beat then-25th-ranked BYU, 24-21, on Sept. 15. Senior John White leads a solid rushing attack for the Utes, who will also need help from QB Jon Hays, who took over for injured QB Jordan Wynn. This is one of the biggest home games in the history of Utah and they’ll make this very competitive.
