Utah coach Bronco Mendenhall on Monday blamed a “big problem” with Utah’s defensive line for the Trojanes faltering on the scoreboard.

The Trojains defense was ranked 24th nationally by ESPN’s coaches for the month of April.

But Mendenhal said the line didn’t play well in the game against No. 10 Iowa State on Saturday.

“We had to get the run game,” Mendenhally said.

“I thought we were really bad at that.” “

Mendenhals squad has struggled in the Pac-12 West, posting a 5-6 record in league play this season. “
