The third game was the charm.

Utah picked up its first win of the season with a 30-24 victory over Oregon State at Rice-Eccles Stadium Saturday night. The win also ended Utah’s two-game losing streak. The Utes nearly blew a 20-point lead in the fourth quarter, but held on with a defensive stand to end the game.

Utah scored on its first four possessions to take control of the game, however, what should have been easy touchdowns turned into field goals as Utah quarterback Jake Bentley missed on several throws in the end zone.

The Utes turned it on in the second half as Britain Covey scored two touchdowns to push the lead to 30-10 with 14 minutes left in the game. The wide receiver scored on an 8-yard touchdown and then added a 64 yard punt return for a touchdown in what would be Utah’s last score of the game.

Bentley had another average game as the senior completed just 18-of-27 passes for 174 yards and a touchdown. Freshman running back Ty Jordan continued to shine as the 5-foot-7, 200-pounder rushed for a game-high 167 yards and a touchdown. Jordan carried the ball 27 times for an average of 6.2 yards per carry. He also added 22 yards receiving.

For the Utes, getting touchdowns in the red zone will likely be a major emphasis in practice this week after settling for field goals instead of touchdowns. It made the game much closer than it needed to be down the stretch.

For Oregon State, the Beavers came in depleted as they were without their starting quarterback and running back due to COVID-19 and recent injuries. Backup quarterback Chance Nolan made his first start and threw for 202 yards and a touchdown. He also added 36 yards on the ground, but it wasn’t enough for the Beavers.

Here’s how the media, fans and players reacted after the game:
