What Utah can do to beat Stanford

Notre Dame was able to get the better of Stanford last week and I noticed some similarities between what the Utes are trying to accomplish on offense and what Notre Dame was able to do against Stanford. Notre Dame was not afraid to run the ball two and three times in a row at some points against this Stanford defense. Utah should mimic that game plan. Utah has got themselves into trouble this season trying to be too diverse in their play calling on offense. Just find what works and run it until the opponent figures out how to stop it. Here are some examples of how Notre Dame kept it simple against the Cardinal.

Notre Dame was also about to generate a pass rush without having to dial up blitzes. That will be huge for Utah if they can get Bradlee Anae going early in the game to keep Stanford from throwing it up to their very tall receiving corps.
