Utah's injury report is reading more like a novel every week, but after thrashing then-No. 11 UCLA 44-6 last week without the team's starting quarterback or running back, among other producers, the growing list of injuries is now something head coach Kyle Whittingham can grin and bear, rather than grimace and bemoan.

Texas: Bye Bye Brian

Texas is in a must-win situation when No. 19 TCU comes to town on Saturday, and the Longhorns will have to snuff the Horned Frogs without the help of defensive end Brian Okrapo.

Losing the Low-Profile MVP

The offensive linemen are the unsung heroes of every football team. They don't get statistics, they're in on every play and most fans only notice them when they do something wrong. But there's no better way to strike panic into a coach than to injure a starting lineman, which would explain the uneasiness suffered this week at Utah and Louisiana Tech.
