Utah held its first scrimmage of the season Saturday afternoon at Rice-Eccles Stadium. There, Corbin Louks stole the show, as he led the No. 1 offense with 11-of-16 completions for 66 yards and ran for 39 yards on the ground. Senior Brian Johnson connected on 4-of-6 passes for 56 yards and also threw for one touchdown. Chad Manis passed for only 23 yards, completing 2-of-6 passes.
Collin Robinson caught 5 passes for 34 yards, while sophomore Eddie Wide ran for 34 yards on 12 carries. Receiver Brent Casteel and running back Matt Asiata, both who missed most of last season, sat out of live contact, however, both performed in the non-contact drills.
On defense, Brandon Burton had two picks, sophomore tackle Lei Talamaivao recorded 2 sacks, along with DB Chaz Walker, while Aaron Tonga had a fumble recovery.
Utah kicker Louie Sakoda, an All-American last year, made 6-of-6 field goals, which accounted for most of Utah's scoring.
