    Utah Beats Beavers 37-24

    The Utah Utes jumped out to a 17-0 lead at Reeser Stadium, and were able to ride that momentum to a W. Reggie Romero kicked off the scoring with a 75yd TD run up the gut, and Maurice Wright followed that up with a 23yd TD toss to TE David O'Neal.

    OSU mustered a FG in the 2nd, but the Utes were able to answer with a touch pass on a fade route to Drew Smith seconds before the end of the half giving Utah a 24-3 lead into halftime.

    The Beavers would score 17 points in the 2nd half, but the Utes were able to answer the bell every time Oregon State scored.

    Utah's run game was really working today. Wright and Romero proved a dangerous combo in the option game. Wright found success through the air as well, because the defense had to account for Romero on almost every play.

    Things dont get any easier for Utah from here on out. They return home to face #2 Stanford before taking on a top-5 Ohio State team. Romero and Wright will have to shine again to have a chance to make it out of this part of the schedule unscathed.
