Utah linebacker Gionni Paul is coming off a loss, but he knows his team is hungry.

Paul, who has been a leader for Utah's defense this season, recorded a team-high 17 tackles vs. USC — he also added his first sack of the season. His tackles were the most he has had in a game this season, ahead of the 14 tackles he recorded against Michigan. Paul also has two picks this year. 

Before the upcoming game vs. Oregon State, Paul had some sharp words for his opposition. 

“We believe we gonna eat them quarterbacks alive,” said Paul, via Salt Lake Tribune. “They haven't faced pressure like University of Utah.”
