The beavers did not go down without a fight in the fourth quarter, as the error-prone Utes almost wasted a lead of 30 to 10 at the beginning of the final phase

It didn’t always look pretty, it wasn’t always easy, and they almost gave it away in the end, but the Utes finally got their first win in more than a year – and their first of this shortened season on Saturday night at the Rice- Eccles Stadium

After giving up nine turnovers in their first two games, Utah (1-2) posted zero turnovers for the first time in this campaign in the second half, dominating defensively for most of the night, and received one from their playmakers tremendous lift and held Oregon State 30-24

It was the first time the Utes have claimed a win since a 45:15 fight against Colorado on November 30, 2019

“It felt great. A ‘W’ is a ‘W,” said UK receiver Britain Covey. “This is a young team There’s a lot to learn This season you have to find the positives in it we’re very excited About a win We’re sick of losing ”

The beavers (2-3) did not go down without a fight in the fourth quarter, as the error-prone Utes almost lost a lead of 30-10 at the beginning of the final phase

“It’s disappointing that we’re leaving the game,” said coach Kyle Whittingham. “We were in complete control and lost control”

When Utah tried to milk the watch, it only won 21 yards in the fourth quarter. The Utes’ three threes in a row during a run were “unacceptable,” said Whittingham. He admitted the fourth-quarter game call was “too vanilla” was

Yes, Oregon State made it interesting with a 21-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Chance Nolan to Kolby Taylor It remained 5:07 to draw within six points

“We essentially gave them that touchdown,” Whittingham said, noting multiple defensive penalties on that drive. As the team, Utah imposed 11 penalties for 96 yards

Then the OSU defense stuffed the freshman in Utah, who ran Ty Jordan back in fourth and first place off the Beaver’s 43-yard line to get the ball back. The Utes had their own fourth stop at 1:40 , but Utah’s offense also ended in a sting

The state of Oregon drove to Utah 36 before closing in fourth and eighth place once and for all with 21 seconds left in the game

“We need to be more disciplined,” said cornerback JaTravis Broughton. “But when the time came we could end it”


Hindered by injury for the past two seasons, Covey enjoyed his 2020 coming-out party, hitting an electrifying 64-yard punt return early in the fourth quarter that turned the Utes into a 30- 10 Advantage As it turned out, this was a crucial TD

“Covey’s punt return was huge,” Whittingham said. “That could have been the difference in the game”


Previously, in the second half of the season, Covey scored Utah’s first points on the first run of the third quarter when he scored an 8-yard touchdown goal from quarterback Jake Bentley, making it Covey’s first touchdown in two years

For the first time this season, the Utes made use of their playmaker stable, and one thing was clear: a healthy covey can make a huge difference to Utah’s offensive and specialty teams

Covey had four receptions for 54 yards and one touchdown and ran twice for seven yards

Jordan rushed to a career high of 167 yards and a TD on 27 carries and got two passes for 22 yards

“I just want to pay tribute to the O-Line,” said Jordan, praising the offensive line for their efforts. “That made a great game”

Whittingham said Jordan was starting to separate even more from the rest of the running backs

Tight end Brant Kuithe had eight catches for 76 yards Bentley completed 18 of 27 passes for 174 yards and one touchdown and no interceptions

Meanwhile, the highly anticipated matchup between the state of Oregon, which brought Jermar Jefferson, one of the nation’s best players back, and Utah’s defense finished first 7th nationally and No. 1 in the Pac-12, against the run, never came about

The OSU was also without their starting quarterback Tristan Gebbia, who was out due to injury. Nolan, a sophomore student, made his first career start for the state of Oregon

The Shorthanded Beavers were only able to compensate for the losses at Jefferson and Gebbia in the fourth quarter

When Utah entered the game, it allowed 905 rushing yards per game that season. Even without Jefferson, the state of Oregon ran 133 yards – the first time Utah has given up more than 100 yards this season.The Beavers finished at 335 yards total insult

In the first half, Utah’s offense had problems with the red zone as there were plenty of opportunities to score touchdowns and open a big lead over the state of Oregon

On the first three drives of the Utes they were in positions three and eight on OSU 15 Third-and-Goal on the 2 and Third-and-5 on the 9

Bentley’s three bad passes, including two for Kuithe, shorted those rides, and Utah had to settle for field goals to take a 9-0 lead at the start of the second quarter

Utah eventually hit the end zone on a one-yard run from Jordan with the fourth and first goals from 1 Bentley’s bobble made it look like a tightrope act for a moment, but Utah took one at 3:10 in the first half 16: 3 lead

The state of Oregon found some life on its last drive halfway through that possession was aided by a couple of fines in Utah, including a targeted call to defense attorney Malone Mataele that drive was limited by a 1-yard run by Calvin Tyler

OSU added their second TD at 11:50 in the fourth quarter to bring the deficit down to 30-17

At their subsequent kick-off, the Beavers recovered an onside kick, but their offensive drive ended quietly with a sting
