Half Time Report: True freshman Jordan Wynn starts off game against New Mexico

By Bryan Chouinard

True freshman Jordan Wynn got the fist start of his career Saturday afternoon and became the first true freshman to start a game at quarterback for the Utes since 1982.

It was a first half of ups and downs for the true freshman who at half time has thrown for 233 yards on 13 for 20 passing with one touchdown and one interception. After going three-and-out on the Utes’ first possession, Wynn hit wide out Jereme Brooks for a 69-yard touchdown pass to put the Utes up 7-0.

But the Lobos responded with a long touchdown pass of their own when quarterback Donovan Porterie connected with wide out Ty Kirk for a 59-yard strike that tied the game up at seven.

On the fallowing Utah drive, Wynn threw his first career interception when cornerback Emmanuel McPhearson picked Wynn at the New Mexico 12-yard line.
But the Utes finished the half strong, scoring 10 unanswered points to close out the half up 17-7 on the Lobos.

Running back Eddie Wide finished the half with only 27 yards on 11 caries but scored on a one-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and has now scored a touchdown in five straight games.

The Utes kicked off to start the game and will be receiving the ball to start the second half.
