    Salt Lake City, UT- Utah played their best defensive game of the season Saturday against Arizona State, and held the struggling Sun Devils to 267 yards of offense and 0 points.

    The Utes defense needed some help to score the first shutout in Coach Jenkins' tenure, but they came up with a goal line stand and an interception in the endzone to make it last. None of the Sun Devils had more than 18 yards rushing, and Utah racked up a total of 673 yards to outgain ASU by more than 400 yards.

    Troy McCormick, Matt Harris, and Richard Lee all topped the 100 yard mark, with Harris leading the way with 193 yards. Harris gained most of his total on a 65 yard run with under a minute to go in the second quarter. He kept on an option play, threw a spin move that froze 2 defenders and out ran the rest of the defense to the endzone.

    Harris was excellent even through the air going 22/27 for 233 yards and 1 TD. The TD pass went to Harrison Handley who caught 6 balls for 57 yards. McCormick ran 16 times for 111 yards and Richard Lee carried 11 times for 117.

    The defense was dominant forcing 2 turnovers, and 4 sacks and kept ASU on their side of the field most of the game. ASU threatened to score just 2 times, and one drive ended with an interception by Dominique Hatfield in the endzone, and the other ended on a 4th and goal that was stopped short.
