The Utah Utes take another loss in Pac-12 play to the USC Trojans. Here are my game balls for Saturday night’s 28-27 loss:
Offense: Zack Moss
Zack Moss went off Saturday night in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Moss rushed for a career-high 141 yards on 20 carries. The sophomore couldn’t be stopped by the Trojans. Moss also accounted for 51 of the 55 yards on a Utah score — Demari Simpkins to Troy Williams for the touchdown.
Defense: Marquis Blair
Marquis Blair had some huge hits Saturday night. He led the Utes with eight tackles and picked up a USC fumble which led to a touchdown for the Utes.
Special Teams: Mitch Wishnowsky
Mitch Wishnowsky averaged 46.8 yards over six punts for a total of 281 yards. The longest punt for the Ray Guy award-winner was a 60-yarder in the fourth qusrter which forced USC to start on their own 7-yard line.
