Their losses came to passing teams as the Utes showed weakness in their secondary by allowing 30 points to USC then 37 points to Oregon in the PAC 12 championship game. Longhorns closed the regular season strong by posting the 49-24 win to Texas Tech. The Alamo Bowl will be played in a dome in San Antonio so a fast playing surface ideal for speed and throwing the football. Texas sports the 19th rated passing attack in college football with 296 yards passing per game. Their defense is 108th ranked surrendering 446 yards. Longhorns extremely weak in pass defense as opponents throw for 306 yards per game ranking 127th in the nation.

Utes senior quarterback Tyler Huntley completed 73.7% of his passes with 18 touchdowns and 4 picks. That completion percentage for an entire season in a power five conference will get the attention of the NFL. Expect Utah to have a game plan to showcase their starting quarterback.
