The Washington Huskies go to Salt Lake City, Utah, to take on the Utah Utes on Thursday at the John M. Huntsman Center. Washington Huskies are coming off of an overtime loss to the Oregon Ducks. The Huskies have been in very tight games as of late, playing two of their last three games in overtime, and the Huskies have only won two of their previous five games.

The Washington Huskies are 12-7 on the season but have struggled recently now that they are in Pac-12 Conference games, as they have only won two of their six Pac-12 games. The Huskies are currently second-to-last in the Pac-12 due to having such a poor record in the conference. The Huskies struggle on offense, but have an excellent defense, only allowing 62.5 points per game, which is 43rd in the NCAA.

The Utah Utes are currently in terrible form, as they are on a four-game losing streak, last losing to the Arizona State Sun Devils in a blowout loss.

The Utah Utes are 10-7 on the season but have a terrible conference record of 1-4 as the Utes have struggled against their Pac-12 opponents. Utah has a good offense, averaging 75.8 points per game, but have a terrible defense, allowing 72.8 points per game, which is 268th in the NCAA.

This game will be an important one for both teams, as both sides have truly struggled the season against Pac-12 teams. A win for either team boosts them up in the standings, with Washington having the ability to jump many teams, while Utah Utes could break out from being the worst Pac-12 team in the conference. The Huskies aren't a terrific offensive team, but they have been a stellar defensive team this season, and I think that their defense is enough to propel them to a very close win over the Utah Utes. Final Score Prediction, Washington Huskies win 76-72.
