A quick look at today’s game between Utah and Washington:

UTAH (4-5 OVERALL, 2-4 PACIFIC-12) AT WASHINGTON (5-4, 3-3)

7:30 P.M., CENTURYLINK FIELD, SEATTLE

TV: Pac-12 Networks RADIO: 950-AM, 850-AM, 102.9-FM.

The series: Washington and Utah have played seven times, with UW winning all seven. Each meeting prior to last year’s 31-14 conference win in Salt Lake City was in Seattle. The first game between the two was Sept. 26, 1931, the opening game of the year as Washington edged the visitors, 7-6.

What to watch: How Washington deals with Utah up front. Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei is one of the best players in the conference and was first-team All-Pac-12 last season. He gets assistance from the menacing Kroger brothers, Dave and Joe.

WHAT’S AT STAKE: A chance for Washington to become bowl eligible.

The pick: Washington, 24-14
