On Saturday, Utah continued its effort to make itself the most-impossible-to-gauge team in the nation, upsetting Louisville 44-35 on the road. This came two weeks after the Utes lost to UNLV, three weeks after they upset UCLA, and four weeks after they fell to Air Force. Quarterback Brian Johnson, who threw for 312 yards against the Cardinals -- scoring one TD through the air and one on the ground -- said he thinks the team's turbulent days are over. "We've taken it upon ourselves as seniors and captains to make sure it doesn't happen and guys understand how good we can be when we make plays," he told the Salt Lake Tribune. "When we make plays we are a darn good team."
Tavious Polo's reign of terror over the nation's quarterbacks stalled this week. South Florida escaped with a win over the Owls in which Polo did not intercept or defend a pass -- although he did force one fumble. Polo still leads the nation in interceptions, with seven, but he can no longer claim to be the only defensive back to pick off Kentucky's Andre Woodson: South Carolina's Captain Munnerlyn matched that feat in a win over the Wildcats on Thursday night.
