By the numbers


Previous start by newly installed quarterback Adam Schulz.


Consecutive Utah defeats since a big upset of Stanford on Oct. 12.


Utes’ rank nationally (tops in the Pac-12) in net punting (40.08), an area for WSU that has been inconsistent.

Game time: 12:30 p.m., Saturday, Martin Stadium.

TV: Pac-12 Networks.

Coach: Kyle Whittingham (75-38, ninth year at Utah).

Record: 4-6, 1-6 Pac-12.

Last game: Utes lost at Oregon, 44-21.

Series: Utah leads, 7-5.

The early line: Washington State by 1 point.

Key players: Wide receiver Dres Anderson averages 19 yards a catch on 41 receptions and has six of 50 yards or more, ranking him No. 2 in the country in that metric. DE-LB Trevor Reilly has 15 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks and is one of 12 semifinalists for the Butkus Award. LB Jacoby Hale has 6.5 sacks on a team that has a nation-leading 36.

Utah’s key to success: With QB Travis Wilson out for the year with a head injury and former walk-on Adam Schulz filling in, the Utes will rely heavily on a ball-control running game and likely also make use of TE Jake Murphy, recently returned from a long injury absence. Defensively, they’ll get after WSU QB Connor Halliday.
