Utah Utes football

In a game full of turnovers and missed opportunities, Utah beat Indiana 26-24 in the Foster Farms Bowl on Wednesday to finish the season 9-4. Utah kicker Andy Phillips hit a 27-yard field goal to win the game with 1:24 left to play, nine minutes after Indiana’s Devine Redding scored the go-ahead touchdown from 3 yards out to give the Hoosiers a one-point lead. The Utes fumbled on the opening kickoff, allowing Indiana to punch the ball in less than a minute into the game. In the second quarter, Indiana was poised to score but gave the ball away near the goal line, only to see the Utes drive 95 yards to score on Tyler Huntley’s 1-yard run to make it 17-7, negating what might have been a 10-7 lead for the Hoosiers. Utah running back Joe Williams had 222 yards and a touchdown in his final game. The Utes lost the turnover battle 4-3.

The Grizzlies built a three-goal lead minutes into the third period to take a 5-3 win over Missouri on Wednesday. Forward Jon Puskar scored the short-handed goal 2:14 into the final period to give Utah a 4-1 lead.
