- Utah has made a big impression in the trenches since joining the Pac-12. Utah players have won 27.3% of all Morris Trophies since joining the Pac-12. The Morris Trophy is given to the best offensive lineman and defensive lineman in the Pac-12 each year.
For example...@Utah_Football features SIX winners in 11 years. @BigMollie_Star in 2011, @nateorchard44 in 2014, @AsiataFive4 in 2016, @BradleeAnae in 2019 and both winners last year, @NickFord55 & Mika Tafua. Nice going, Utes!— MorrisTrophy (@MorrisTrophy) May 5, 2022
