The University of Utah, a 151/2-point underdog, put a serious scare into Arizona State before the Sun Devils escaped with a 21-15 victory in front of 44,324 fans at Sun Devil Stadium.
The game was not decided until ASU's Kevin Miniefield intercepted Frank Dolce's pass at midfield with 30 seconds left. An 18-yard touchdown pass from Dolce to Bryan Rowley had pulled the Utes, who led 7-0 in the second quarter, within six points with 4:03 remaining. But after getting the ball back with 1:15 to go, the Utes couldn't convert on their final possession.
"Utah is a fine football team," said ASU coach Larry Marmie. "They have a strong defensive team that could really cause problems."
"I'm proud of our football team," said Utah coach Ron McBride, whose team fell to 3-2 with the loss. "We took a squad that beat USC and played them to a standstill."
