Idaho State is carrying a 44-game road losing streak into Utah on Thursday night for its season opener. So coach Mike Kramer was brutally honest: He doesn't see his Bengals reversing that trend against the Utes.
Idaho State hasn't won on the road since 2006. On top of that, Utah is 6-0 against the Bengals, including a 66-0 drubbing in the last meeting in 1994.
So for obvious reasons, most of the attention will fall on Utah quarterback Travis Wilson, who will be playing for the first time since last November when a concussion nearly derailed his career.
Doctors treating Wilson found damage to an artery in his brain. After closely watching the injury, the artery remained stable and the 6-foot-7 junior was allowed to participate in non-contact drills this spring. In June, he got clearance to play again.
