The Utah offense was near midfield with seconds remaining in the second quarter, but the Utes didn’t even take a shot downfield. Coaches also opted to punt with the Utes facing fourth-and-1 from their own 40-yard line.

Then trailing 30-14, offensive coaches got desperate, throwing on first down. The drive ended in a punt.

Each possession came trailing by two possessions midway through the third quarter, minutes before Oregon added another two touchdowns just four minutes apart to seal the win. The Utah offense and defense playing better than the Ducks’ opponents usually do raises the coaching grade multiple notches. GRADE: C+
