Utah will play USC without tailback Tavion Thomas, who injured his toe against Oregon.
Thomas announced Nov. 25 he would skip the rest of the season and prepare for the NFL Draft.

- USC defensive coordinator Alex Grinch on facing Utah tight end Dalton Kincaid a second time. Kincaid had 16 catches for 234 yards in the first meeting vs. the Trojans.
“As a competitor, it certainly doesn’t take playing them again to be reminded, it’s a constant anytime someone has a career game against you, and there’s a level of embarrassment about it,” Grinch said. “But also, if a guy scores 40, in a basketball game, then you’ve got to go play him again, you can’t assume he’s gonna score 40 again.”
- Christine McVie, the singer-songwriter behind some of Fleetwood Mac’s biggest hits, died Wednesday following a brief illness. She was 79.
McVie wrote and/or sang several of their hits including “Don’t Stop,” “Over My Head,” “You Make Loving Fun” and “Say You Love Me.”
“A few hours ago I was told that my best friend in the whole world since the first day of 1975, had passed away,” Stevie Nicks wrote in a handwritten note on Instagram. “I didn’t even know she was ill… until late Saturday night.”
