Utes fall in Championship bid 10-3.
On the last drive of the game, Utah was within a score. Without the starting quarterback. Without the starting running back (soon to star on Sundays). Without the leading receiver. But Washington’s defense held firm – as it did all game – securing the Rose Bowl berth 10-3 against the Utes.

While this defeat is surely stinging, Utah showed how close it is to being at the top of the Pac-12. Amid all of the adversity, this team fought back. Ultimately, it’ll end with in late December, but this team proved it’s not #JustARegularTeam.
Utah AD Mark Harlan tells us that he believes strongly that Utah should be in the Alamo or Holiday Bowls….He’s in communication with both of those bowls..#Utes
