The No. 5 Utah Utes will welcome the No. 23 California Golden Bears to Salt Lake City Saturday night for a matchup between two undefeated Pac-12 teams.
The Utes enter this one 4-0, which is their best start since 2010 when they won their first eight contests. With a bye week in week 5, the last time we saw Utah on the field was when it dismantled Oregon in Eugene, 62-20. The Utes hope to get the same production out of all three phases. The offense cooked behind QB Travis Wilson’s 5 total TDs and 327 total yards, while the defense forced three turnovers and held the high-flying Oregon offense to just 20 points. Utah’s special teams even joined the party as Boobie Hobbs returned a punt 69 yards to extend the Utes beatdown.
The Golden Bears are raising some eyebrows, as they are also undefeated this season, standing at 5-0 and led by a Heisman candidate in QB Jared Goff. Like Utah, California is also off to one of its best starts in school history dating back to when the 2007 team also went 5-0 to start its season. The Golden Bears topped Washington State last week, 34-28. Goff shined throwing for four touchdowns, which helped him to become California’s all-time leader in touchdown passes (68). Goff now holds 23 school-records in addition to touchdown passes.
These two squads haven’t met since 2012. Saturday’s matchup will be the 10th all-time. Utah is looking to win its second straight and tie the series, which Cal currently leads 5-4.

The Bears haven’t truly played a complete game since the Week 2 blowout of San Diego State. And it’ll require a complete game to defeat Utah in Salt Lake City. The Utes will lean on their usual blueprint for success, Booker, a stout D and the nation’s best special teams unit, to frustrate Goff and the Bears at the point of attack. Cal has traveled a long way under Dykes, but the program’s progress will suffer a slight detour Saturday night.
