Utah running back Zack Moss returns in 2019 with the hope of finishing what he started just three seasons ago. The Hallandale, Florida native suffered a knee injury prior to the Oregon game and was lost for the remainder of his junior campaign. Despite the injury, Moss managed to rush for over 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns in just nine games. The school’s fourth all-time leading rusher’s health will go a long way in determining the Utes’ fate in the Pac-12 South.
Moss' upper body strength frequently allows him to challenge defenders on the perimeter. Standing 5-foot-10 and nearly 220 pounds, Moss relishes the physical part of the game.
Versus this field blitz from West Virginia's Xavier Preston (No. 5 pictured) and Marvin Gross (No. 18 pictured) in the 2017 Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl, Moss fails to stay square as Preston beats him over the top. His sturdy frame should enable him to be a tone-setter in this facet of his game (pass protection).
