As the Utes head into uncharted waters in the Pac-12, the player they can't do without is quarterback Jordan Wynn. Behind Wynn there is not much experience which means it is imperative that he stay healthy and perform. To make matters worse, the Utes graduated Eddie Wide and Matt Asiata at running back with the top options now being a junior college transfer, a true freshman, and a former rugby player.
If Terrance Cain were still around, Wynn would not be so crucial to the Utes' success but now they can't afford to have him go down. Wynn is not going to blow anyone away with his arm or mobility. Wynn is only required to be a game manager, which means somebody will need to step up in the run game to keep pressure off Wynn and receiver DeVonte Christopher.
