Utah running back John White has done just fine carrying Utah's run game the last four games as the senior has broken 100 yards in each of them. However, he might get a little help against Colorado. Backup running back Kelvin York practiced Monday and could be available for Friday's game, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. "He practiced for the first time and hope to have Kelvin in the lineup but there are no guarantees," he said. York has missed the last three games with an ankle sprain. He has 50 carries for 248 yards this year. White has rushed 198 times for 873 yards. He needs 127 yards against Colorado to become the first player in Utah history to have back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. He rushed for a school record 1,519 yards in 2011. Freshman running back Jarrell Oliver, who has not played in the last two games, had surgery to repair a foot injury Monday, Whittingham said. - Lya Wodraska
