Utes 28, Air Force 23
Player of the game
Utes' freshman safety had a team-high nine tackles, and he also intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble.
Utah's season-best five takeaways proved pivotal. The Utes recovered three fumbles and picked off a pair of passes in improving to 8-0 on the season.
By the numbers
Utah's 19 first downs led to a final time-of-possession advantage of more than 12-1/2 minutes. It offset a 411-327 deficit in total offensive yardage.
"Air Force is a tough team. We knew coming in it would take all four quarters."
