It’s not exactly an easy task to win every game, but so far Utah has done exactly that. Could the hot streak continue all season?

According to KSL.com, two Pac-12 teams have gone undefeated since 1978 (when the Pac-8 became the Pac-10). The list stops and ends with the ’04 USC Trojans and the ’91 Washington Huskies. Oregon went 12-0 during the regular season in 2010, but fell to Auburn in the 2011 National Championship. 

"Will Utah go undefeated?" writes KSL.com’s Josh Furlong. "The chances are slim, but never doubt a program with a true team mentality and desire to make its mark on its newfound conference."

The report mentions ESPN gives Utah a 28.6 percent chance of winning the conference and a 2.9 percent chance of winning out.
