Utah Football Falls 21-7 At #19 Oregon State
The University of Utah football team suffered a tough loss on Saturday, falling 21-7 to the #19 Oregon State Beavers. The Utes had a chance to make a statement in their first road game of the season, but were unable to capitalize on their opportunities. The Utes were held to just seven points and only managed to gain 229 yards of total offense.
The Utes started off strong, taking an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter after quarterback Tyler Huntley connected with wide receiver Samson Nacua for a touchdown. However, the Beavers responded with two touchdowns in the second quarter and never looked back. Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as the Beavers took control of the game.
The Utes struggled offensively throughout the game, as they were unable to establish any sort of rhythm or consistency. Huntley was held to just 11-of-25 passing for 109 yards and one touchdown, while running back Zack Moss was held to just 64 yards on 17 carries. The Utes also committed three turnovers in the game, which proved costly as they were unable to capitalize on their opportunities.
The defense played well for Utah, holding Oregon States offense in check throughout most of the game. The Utes forced two turnovers and held Luton to just 14-of-27 passing for 166 yards and two touchdowns. However, they were unable to get off the field when it mattered most as Oregon State was able to convert several key third downs late in the game that allowed them to run out the clock and secure the victory.
Overall, it was a disappointing performance from Utah as they failed to take advantage of their opportunities against a ranked opponent on the road. The Utes will look to bounce back next week when they host Idaho State at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
烏特人一開始表現得很強勁，在上半場就以7比0領先。這是因為四分衛Tyler Huntley與寬接手Samson Nacua連接一個觸地得分。然而，海狸隊在下半場反彈了兩個觸地得分，然後就再也不回頭了。俄勒岡州海狸隊的四分衛Jake Luton連接了兩個觸地得分，而且還奔出一個觸地得分，使海狸隊占據了整個遊戲的主導地位。
烏特人整個遊戲都表現不佳，他們無法形成任何形式的節奏或一致性。Huntley只完成25球中的11球，109 碼而且只有一球進入觸地區；而橫向奔者Zack Moss則17球64 碼。此外，烏特人也在遊戲中失去三球，這也是代价惨重的——因為他們無法將機會化作真正的利用。
對於Utah來說，防守表現不錯——他們壓制住了俄勒根州的進攻整整一天。Utah強迫出兩球失誤而且壓低Luton只完成27球中14球、166 碼、2 得分。然而當海狸隊要關鍵性的三度傳球時：Utah卻無法離開這裡——使海狸隊能夠用來死守底線、保住勝利。
整體來說：Utah表現不如愿——他們無法將機會化作真正的利用、去對上一名名校客車之旅。Utah將於明周舉行Idaho State於Rice-Eccles Stadium之便再度出來競技
