A goalpost at the University of Utah's Rice Stadium falls victim to fans after Saturday's game in which the U. football team ended 10 years of frustration by downing Brigham Young University 57-28. U. sophomore Scott Mitchell threw for 384 yards and three touchdowns, setting two NCAA passing records, en route to the upset of the 19th-ranked Cougars. Mitchell finished the season with 533 passing atempts, breaking the NCAA record of 511 by BYU's Robbie Rosco in 1985. Senior tailback Eddie Johnson rushed for 112 yards and four more touchdowns for the U., plus he caught two Mitchell passes for 91 yards. The game puts Utah at 4-4 in the WAC and 6-5 overall. BYU, which plays Colorado Dec. 29 in the Freedom Bowl, is 8-3 and 5-3. See stories on D1.
