Utes stay alive in PAC-12 South chase

The University of Utah preserved their PAC-12 South title hopes with a victory over the Oregon Ducks on Saturday night, Jason Shelley, starting for the injured Tyler Huntley had a hot first half, and put together an important drive late in the fourth quarter after the Utes surrendered their game long lead.

Shelley and the Utes drove 60 yards after a personal foul penalty set the Utes up at their own 40 yard line to being the drive, finding pay dirt on a Shelley scramble to put the Utes up four points with under seven minutes to play.

Jaylon Johnson broke up a fourth down pass from Ducks quarterback Justin Herbert, and Armand Shyne marched the Utes to the goal line milking the clock en route to a 174 yard performance. The Utes would settle for a clock draining field goal, and knock off the Ducks who were left with limited time for a potential game winning drive.

The Utes now have a simpler path to a PAC-12 South title. The Utes need to beat Colorado next Saturday on the road, then hope Arizona State loses to either Oregon on the road next week, or in a rivalry game against Arizona to close the season.
