Despite Early Lead, Utes trail at half

After jumping out to an early 6-0 lead thanks to back-to-back field goals from Utah’s Joe Phillips, the Cougars responded with a 17 play 52 yard drive that ended in a 27 yard field goal. Freshman quarterback Jordan Wynn went 6-6 for 87 yards in the first quarter before throwing his first incomplete pass of the game in the second quarter. Wynn finished the half going 10-17 for 101 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.
A 43-yard punt return with seven minutes left in the half setup a Harvey Unga touchdown run which gave the Cougars a 10-6 lead halfway through the second quarter. With less then a minute left in the half a Jordan Wynn interception set up a 37-yard field goal which gave BYU a 13-6 lead heading into the break. The BYU defense held Utah running back Eddie Wide to 23 yards on six carries and held the Utes to only 114 yards of total offense in the half.

BYU quarterback Max Hall finished the half going 8-23 for only 83 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions and was sacked three times.

The Utes will receive the ball to start the second.
