THE DOPE: The Utes, aiming at football's big time, have taken on the toughest schedule in school history, with UCLA, Rice and Colorado the nonconference opponents. Coach Jack Curtice lost three backfield starters from the 1955 squad, but he has high hopes for a pair of sophomore quarterbacks—Pete Haun and Wally Suba—who will operate his new smorgasbord offense. Curtice says, "My smorgasbord offense is designed to confuse the fans, the opponents and maybe us." The smorgasbord offense is a little bit of everything. The loss of two top ends through scholastic ineligibility makes that position weak; only two tackles have experience and the guard position is only fair, but the Utes have three good centers. "Wait until next year" is the cry.

Sept. 21—at UCLA, N (no game)
