The Utes never stood a chance. It was 28-3 at halftime. ASU quarterback Mike Pagel went 18-of-26 for three touchdowns, and two Sun Devil running backs notched 100-yard rushing outings. The lone bright spot for Utah was Del Rodgers, who tallied 84 yards on just 13 carries, and one was a 42-yard scamper.

Utah recovered following the loss by winning seven straight games and tying another before getting doubled up Nov. 21 at BYU. They finished 8-2-1 under Howard. ASU finished 9-2 and 16th in the final AP poll.
