Ravell Call
Utah Utes tight end Brant Kuithe signals a first down after catching a pass against the USC Trojans during NCAA football in Salt Lake City on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018.

The Utah Utes had an up-and-down first half in reverse Saturday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium against the USC Trojans, falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter before scoring the game's next 20 points to take a six-point advantage into halftime.

As such, reactions from Twitter users had a big swing as well.

First, the bad, as the Trojans scored on a miracle catch to take a 7-0 lead. USC's offensive possession came after Utah failed to convert a fourth down at midfield.

Things got worse as former Bingham star Jay Tufele recovered a fumble for the Trojans and returned it for a touchdown.

But the game started to turn around for the Utes on the next drive as Britain Covey had a nice kickoff return and then took a pass from Tyler Huntley into the end zone for Utah's first score.

Then Huntley started to take over, finishing the half 14 of 19 for 197 yards passing with a touchdown and another touchdown on the ground.

After USC missed a short field-goal attempt, the Utes marched down the field in the waning moments of the second quarter and Matt Gay made a field goal as time expired.
