The Utah Utes overwhelmed the Washington State Cougars by scoring six touchdowns en route to a 49-6 victory at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Washington State was held scoreless until finding the end zone on the final play of regulation. They declined to go for the extra point.

Utah quarterback Travis Wilson went 17 for 21 for 171 yards and two touchdowns, adding to the Utes' 453 yards of total offense. Running back John White had 18 carries for 101 yards and two touchdowns.

Washington State struggled all game to run the ball and ended with minus-4 rushing yards. The Utes, on the other hand, used their rushing attack to eat up the clock. Utah's time of possession was 37:39, nearly twice as long as the Cougars.

Utah had help from everywhere. Reggie Dunn ran a kick off 100 yards for a touchdown. Star Lotulelei forced a sack fumble. And Reggie Topps grabbed an interception.

Washington State is winless in the Pac-12 so far this season.
