SALT LAKE CITY -- The No. 5 University of Utah Utes will take on No. 23 Cal Saturday night in Rice-Eccles Stadium, and with ESPN College GameDay in town Salt Lake City is experiencing some football fever.

FOX 13 Sports' Jeff Rhineer has a preview of what we can expect in Saturday night's game, including some comments from Coach Whittingham on why he believes the Utes have been able to go 4-0 so far this season.

"I can tell you right now that a couple of the reasons we are 4-0 right now, first of all, quarterback play," Whittingham said. "Travis Wilson has been outstanding, particularly in the last ballgame, leading the nation in QB rating. Defensive front seven we expected to be good, we're pretty good, defending the run fairly well. The secondary may have come along a little sooner than we thought."

See the video above for more of Coach Whitt's comments as well as for interviews with several Utah players.
