So now that the game will be in Fort Worth, the first time the Utes will play in Amon G. Carter on a Saturday night as a member of the MWC, who do they give the reigns of their offense to? Don't be fooled when you see #3 at quarterback, it's not Johnson again- it's true freshman Jordan Wynn.
Wynn graduated early from Oceanside High School early to join Utah for spring practice this year, and was immediately put into competition to win the starting role. He made his first career start last week against New Mexico, completing 18 of 28 passes for 297 yards with 2 TD's and 1 INT. He led the Ute offense to 557 yards of offense against the hapless Lobo D before leaving early. So as the first line of ESPN's write-up of the game stated, "Jordan Wynn still hasn't played a whole game."
With a young quarterback making his first-ever road start for a team that's enjoyed the comforts of their home stadium the last three weeks coming to Fort Worth, Frog fans need to get their vocal chords ready to go for Saturday night!

"Let's just get the obvious part out of the way first -- Texas A&M, what on earth is going on with you?
The young Aggies continued their recent stretch of on-again, off-again play with a very off-again performance against Colorado, probably the worst or second-to-worst team in the Big 12. Several other teams stuck to their losing ways, as Rice (allllmmooossstttt!) and UNT both tumbled yet again. But on the rise has to be SMU, which is now at six wins and (truthfully) just one more win away from locking up a bowl bid. Baylor could be doing something similar, as its stunning upset of Missouri has the look of a turning point in this frustrating season.
And then, at the top, we of course have our consistent trio of contenders -- Texas, TCU and Houston, in the very order they've spent so much of the season occupying. Though the Frogs managed to wrest away one first-place vote from the rolling 'Horns, Texas still has the majority of our voters convinced. But if we did a Heisman power poll? Don't think you'd see Colt there -- that one looks like it would go to Case Keenum and his electrifying Coogs."
