Darrell Mack
PLAYER OF THE GAME

The junior carried the ball 32 times for 165 yards and three touchdowns and kept the Utes' offense balanced.

PLAY OF THE GAME

More than simply one play. Utah's seven-play, 82-yard drive, capped by Brian Johnson's 25-yard touchdown run, is a huge turning point after Louisville cut the lead to 27-21 with 14 unanswered points to begin the third quarter.

KEY CALL

After cutting the Utah lead to 41-35 with 3:33 to play and timeouts remaining, the Cardinals decide to try an onside kick. Utah recovers, setting up great field position and leading to Louie Sakoda's game-clinching field goal.

QUOTABLE

"The kids played hard. They found a way to win. Period." — Gary Andersen, Utah defensive coordinator
