The Utes keep rolling in the MWC Players of the Week honors. This week safety Brian Blechen picked up the Defensive Player of the Week honor. Blechen had a career-high nine tackles (six solo), an interception and a fumble recovery in the Utes' 28-23 win over Air Force. Blechen's third-quarter interception led to a Utah touchdown that gave the Utes a 28-10 lead. Blechen injured his ankle in the game but Utah coaches are hopeful he'll be able to play Saturday. We should get an update today at the press conference.
