game summaries to come
The Utes were able to close the close game out with a last drive int by Impact MLB Chaz Walker in a pretty even game, despite Auburn jumping on the Utes 10-0. Auburn had 316 yards total offense to Utah's 246. Utah would not have been able to handle Auburns stellar d-line play(4 sacks) without the breakout performance of TE K. Moeai(5 rec., 96 yds, TD).
In todays game there was pretty solid QB play on both sides: Ute QB J. Wynn went 14-18, 186 yards, 2 td's and Aub QB B. Trotter went 15-19, 175 yards, 2 Td's. Auburn's backup went 3-6, 43 yards, 1 int..
There were key injuries on both teams with Aub RB M. Dyer going down in the second quarter and the #1 Ute WR Christopher going down on the opening kickoff.
The Utes look forward to next weeks trip to Los Angeles to take on the USC Trojans!!!
Michigan State: 24 Utah: 17
The Utes Struggled for offense in this great match up in Salt Lake City. In Utah's opening drive they drove down the field into field goal range and missed a 47 yarder. Michigan State then drove down the field and attempted and made a field goal of their own. The biggest play of the first half was a 1st play of the drive gut-wrenching TD run by MSU RB Edwin Baker to increase the lead to 13-7.
In the Second half, Utah made a game changing int on their own 10 yard line to take the lead at 14-13.. In the late 4th, after a field goal by Utah( 17-13), MSU drove the ball down the field to score a TD with a 2point conversion to take the lead 24-17. With Utah feeling time restraints and pressure of letting the game slip away, QB J. Wynn threw an ill advised int with less than 2 minutes left in the game.
Next week the Utes look forward to bouncing back against the Michigan Wolverines
