Can the Utes move the ball against a top-rated Wyoming defense? Can they win the turnover battle?

Wyoming comes into Rice-Eccles Stadium tomorrow ranked first in the conference and sixth in the nation in total defense, allowing merely 287.33 yards per game. The Cowboys have been extremely solid against the run, giving up a smidgen more than 100 yards per game. Meanwhile, the Utes come into the contest with a punishing running attack, having accumulated 322 yards on the ground against Colorado State. Can Darrell Mack and the Utes sustain their offensive production against one of the better defenses in the country?
