Game balls for the Oregon game

New, comment
NCAA Football: Utah at Oregon Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

If you learned anything from the Utah Utes’ loss to the Oregon Ducks in Eugene Saturday night it’s this — the Utes shouldn’t be concerned about a bowl game right now. Their only concern should be figuring out their identity and how to get back on track to winning the remainder of their games.

I used to look forward to Sundays. Not right now though. I spend all day thinking ‘how I am going to give out game balls to a team that seems to be falling apart’? It’s a good thing I am always able to see the bright side of things. So without further ado, here are your game balls:

Offense

Tyler Huntley

Making his second start after returning from an injury, Tyler Huntley completed 25 of 43 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns.

Defense

Kylie Fitts

Defensive end Kylie Fitts made eight tackles and had one sack.

Honorable Mention

Darrin Paulo

The Utes were down 17-6 at the half. The team scored their first touchdown when Tyler Huntley’s pass was tipped and fell into right tackle Darrin Paulo’s hands, while he was flat on his back. in the end zone. After review, the Utes were within four of the Oregon Ducks and trailed 17-13.
