UTAH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Utah drops head scratcher at Oregon State, 68-67

Well, at least they're consistent with not being able to take care of the ball, as Utah dropped to Oregon State 68-67 in Corvallis, giving the Beavers their first Pac-12 win. Utah turned over the ball 17 times against OSU, and had two awful stretches of basketball that doomed them. First, the Utes dug themselves a 10 point hole to open the game, with some ugly offense. Then, Utah...

Utes fall to Oregon without Kuzma

Thursday night at Oregon went about as I expected for the Utes, as they fell to the Ducks 79-61. It was going to be an uphill battle for the Utes anyway, but the fact that they were without Kyle Kuzma, who twisted his ankle in practice, pretty much cemented Utah's fate. Jayce Johnson did play well in Kuzma's absence, with 14 points and 12 rebounds, but it's hard to replace Kuz's...

Broncos Prospect Profile: Garett Bolles, LT, Utah

Utah tops Washington, 85-61

The first four minutes of the game against Washington was pretty similar to the last three games Utah has played. It was a turnover fest, as Utah racked up six early turnovers to dig themselves an 18-10 hole to the Huskies. There were errant passes, attempts to do too much, and just bad basketball. Fortunately, after that initial flurry of terrible hoops, the Utes rallied to go...

Utah Utes defeat Indiana to cap off another solid season

The Utah Utes defeated Indiana 26-24 in the Foster Farms Bowl to cap off another solid season. That’s not to suggest that the Utes were perfect. They clearly weren’t. Utah was its own worst enemy in this contest, turning the ball over four times, including a fumble on the opening kickoff that allowed Indiana to take a 7-0 lead right out of the gate. In addition, the Utes shot...

Colorado Buffaloes defeat Utah, capture Pac-12 South championship

The Colorado Buffaloes defeated Utah 27-22 to win the Pac-12 South championship. And, judging by how it played on Saturday night, don’t be surprised if Colorado hoists the Pac-12 championship trophy next weekend. That’s not to say that the Buffaloes were perfect. They definitely were not. The Colorado special teams allowed two long kick returns, which resulted in 10 points...

Utah Utes whip Arizona State, keep pace Pac-12 South race

Powered by a strong second half, the Utah Utes defeated Arizona State 49-26 to remain in contention for the Pac-12 South title. Make no mistake about it: this was a huge win for Kyle Whittingham’s squad. After all, Arizona State has dominated this series in recent history, winning 11 of the last 12 meetings. Considering that the Utes hadn’t won in Tempe since 1976 – when both...

Washington and Utah are setting the stage for the new Pac-12

When Troy Williams’s fourth-and-15 pass fell incomplete, the Utah faithful groaned as one. The 17th-ranked Utes had pushed the No. 4 Washington Huskies all afternoon, but a late punt return touchdown had the home team down 31-24. Questionable play-calling and penalties got Utah to fourth down, but there wasn’t a soul in Rice-Eccles Stadium who thought the Utes couldn’t tie...

WATCH: Dante Pettis returns punt 58 yards for TD

The Utah Utes had Washington right where they wanted them, tied up at 24-24 late in the fourth quarter. Then Huskies quarterback Jake Browning dropped an epic pooch punt, pinning the Utes at the one-yard line. Three plays later, Utah was forced to punt from its own end zone, and Dante Pettis took full advantage of his opportunity to shine. Pettis appeared to be bottled up. He then...

Utah Utes running back Joe Williams knows that feeling, having felt the pain and suffering of being a football player.

Utah RB Joe Williams talks trash after monster game vs UCLA

Utah running back Joe Williams rushed for a school record on Saturday against UCLA, and then he twisted the knife with a little bit of trash talk. Williams rushed for 332 yards and four touchdowns as Utah outscored UCLA 52-45 at the Rose Bowl. He was so much of Utah's offense that he accounted for 92 percent of the team's rushing yards (360 total) and 62 percent of the team's total...
