AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — Utah kicker Joe Phillips' school-record streak of consecutive field goals made came to an end late in Saturday's 28-23 victory over Air Force.
A 42-yard attempt in a stiff wind with 3:21 remaining bounced off the right upright, ending his run of success after 18 straight makes.
"I miss-hit it pretty bad. All I hit it with was my toes. So I didn't connect with it," Phillips said. "It was right on the inside of the upright then right at the end faded out and hit the upright."
The streak dated back to last season.
"It was very rewarding," said the two-time Lou Groza Award semifinalist. "This way I'll start it over with a new slate and get it going again."
