SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – For the second straight season, the Utah Utes are going to play for a Pac-12 Championship after clinching the South Division Title with a 45-15 win over Colorado.
It was a concerning start in the first quarter as the Buffaloes held a 7-0 lead. Utah had just 27 total yards of offense and Colorado racked up 91 yards in the first 15 minutes of play
But, the No. 6 ranked team in the country changed the momentum when quarterback Tyler Huntley threw one of his two passing touchdowns to tight end Brant Kuithe for a 38-yard score. Utah went on to outscore the Buffs 45-8 in the final three quarters and held Colorado to 126 total yards of offense during that stretch.
