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.

His sturdy frame should enable him to be a tone-setter in this facet of his game (pass protection).
