Expect to see a lot of Benjamin against the Bruins, who rank 107th in the nation in rushing defense. Two games ago, Utah’s Zack Moss rushed for 211 yards and three touchdowns in the Utes’ 41-10

Wilkins is a three-year starter who’s had four offensive coordinators.
He said it will be an emotional day playing in his final game at Sun Devil Stadium.
“I’ve put (in) a lot of hard work, a lot of dedication, and I grew up tremendously here,” Wilkins said. “This place will forever be special to me. I know when I walk out of that tunnel for the last time it’s going to be hard

The Bruins’ Joshua Kelley rushed for 161 yards and a touchdown in 26 carries.
