Armed Forces Bowl

Utah vs. Tulsa

December 23, 8PM, Ft. Worth


Brett Ratliff is Utah's starting quarterback. And though he only managed 548 rushing yards on 140 carries, Darryl Poston is the leading tailback. Still, if you asked 10 Utes fans to name the most electrifying player on the 7-5 squad, the whole bunch would probably say Eric Weddle, the do-everything athlete who's liable to line up as a cornerback, fullback, punt returner, safety or field goal holder at any moment. Can't you just see Tulsa coach Steve Kragthorpe now, sitting somewhere, looking at Utah game film, trying to figure the guy out? If he does come up with a way to get his bruising Golden Hurricane team (8-4) in the win column –I'm picking the Utes, 38-21, by the way- all the media hype about him being the leading candidate for so many coaching job openings will be warranted.

Interesting Fact: Tulsa was held under 20 points just once in the '06 regular season.
