Sweet 16 Utes look to extend winning streak.

839121
No. 17 Utah (1-0) heads west this weekend to take on San Jose State (0-1) in the Utes first road test of the season.
In the season opener, Utah used a balanced offensive attack to defeat Utah State 35-17. The Utes rolled up 519 yards of total offense, including 233 yards rushing. San Jose State opened their season in the road, losing to No. 3 USC 56-3 and getting out-gained by almost 500 yards. The Spartans struggled moving the ball all game, gaining just 121 yards of offense, only 9 of which came in the second half.
It will be a homecoming in many ways for Utah defensive tackle Kenape Eliapo. Eliapo is from nearby San Fransisco and his younger brother Ailao Eliapo is the starting right guard for the Spartans. "That started over a year ago," Kenape Eliapo said about some friendly family trash talk. "They all said 'you'd better not let the little brother get you'. It's going to be exciting but I've got to go in like it's just another game and not let the emotions get me."
