    Utah 19
    Penn St. 0

    In a pretty even matchup, Utah and their defense took a 3-0 lead at halftime. Although Penn St. couldn’t move the ball well, they were still in the game. Midway through the 3rd quarter, Utah converted on another FG to take the lead 6-0. On Penn St.’s next possession, they were sacked and linebacker Fagegren returned it for the score to make a 12-0 lead. Utah’s Thretton Palamo added a rushing TD in the 4th to effectively end the game.

    The story of this game was Utah rush defense. They held PSU HB Silas Redd to 23 yards on 11 carries and the D-Line racked up 3 sacks.

    HB Thretton Palamo was impressive in his college football debut. The formal rugby player ran for 125 yards and almost 5 YPC and added a score in the 4th quarter.

    Utah has silenced some doubts about not being able to play in a BCS conference, but next week’s matchup will be their 1st ever Pac-12 game. USC awaits in what should be a very good game.

    Utah Standouts
    Jordan Wynn (QB)- 10-16 for 142 yards
    Thretton Palamo (HB)- 26 carries for 125 yards, TD
    Kendrick Moeai (TE)- 5 receptions for 72 yards
    Dave Fagergen (or XXXXXXXX) (#51 OLB)- 3 tackles, 2 TFL, fumble return TD
    Star Lotulei (DT)- 4 tackles, 2 TFL, sack
    Matt Martinez (OLB)- INT
    Keith McGill (SS)- INT
