The Best Reactions From Utah’s Dominating 42-10 Victory Over Arizona


Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley did it all.

The junior out of Dania, Florida had a game to remember as he threw two touchdowns, ran for a score and also hauled in a 58-yard touchdown pass to lead Utah past Arizona, 42-10, Friday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

After upsetting then-No. 14 Stanford last week, the Utes didn’t come out sluggish as they picked up right where they had left off and built a quick lead and didn’t look back. The Utes controlled both the lines of scrimmage and played their best ball of the season after dropping their first two conference games.

While there were too many highlights to count, there were several that stood out, including a fake punt by Mitch Wishnowsky, Demari Simpkins’ 68-yard touchdown catch and a sweet grab by Jaylen Dixon.

The Utes even ran a lovely trick play in which as Huntley handed the ball to Zack Moss, who tossed it back to Britain Covey who then threw a perfect spiral to Huntley to put the Utes up 35-0 early in the third quarter.

Huntely finished the night completing 14-of-19 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns as well as one rushing touchdown (64 yards) and one receiving touchdown (58 yards).
