Player of the game
Tight end caught six passes for 78 yards, including two touchdowns of 10 yards and 8 yards from Jordan Wynn.
The Utah offense used freshman Travis Wilson in goal-line situations that resulted in two touchdown runs from 3 and 6 yards out.
"Overall it was a decent start, but obviously the degree of difficulty gets much higher next week. We're going to have to go up to Logan and that will be a tough football week for us."
