The Utah offense was stifled all afternoon in a costly 20-19 defeat to nationally ranked Arizona State. The Utes gave up a 12-point lead in the fourth quarter, slipping below .500 for the first time all season and losing to the Sun Devils for the 10th consecutive game.

The grades are in. Here's how the Utes fared as a team.

I have a lot of respect for coach Kyle, but I think he must have been in a different 4th quarter then the rest of us. They completely abandoned the game that got them to the 4th quarter with the lead. And I loved the game up to that point. They really gave this one away and coaching is an appropriate place to put the blame. Usually Kyle is the best in the state.

Rhett, Rhett, Rhett, I am surprised your still writing. I figured you would be hiding since your projection that USU would not win six games. I suppose your okay since you are writing about fact now, instead of conjecture. Just to remind you, USU is bowl eligible with 2 games to play. Back to the drawing board for you Rhettski!
