Utah State University football at Hawaii

The Utah State football team ran for 426 yards and finished with 601 yards of total offense in a 56-17 win over Hawaii in a Mountain West Conference game Saturday in Honolulu. Darwin Thompson ran for 141 yards and three touchdowns and Gerold Bright added 121 yards and three scores for the Aggies (8-1, 5-0 MWC).

University of Utah football
at Arizona State

The Utah football team lost junior quarterback Tyler Huntley to a broken collarbone in the third quarter, then lost Saturday’s Pac-12 Conference matchup 38-20 to Arizona State in Tempe, Arizona. The Utes (6-3, 4-3 Pac-12) trailed just 21-20 at the time of Huntley’s injury, but couldn’t get anything going offensively with redshirt freshman Jason Shelley under center. Zack Moss ran for 128 yards and a touchdown and Samson Nacua caught four passes for 68 yards and a score in the loss. Stansbury High graduate Alani Havili-Katoa did not play in the game for Utah, which plays host to Oregon on Saturday at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.

Brigham Young University
football at Boise State

The BYU football team suffered its second loss in a row and fourth in the past five games, losing 21-16 to Boise State on Saturday in Boise, Idaho. The Cougars (4-5) fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter, but battled their way back and very nearly won the game late if not for a goal-line stand by the Broncos. Quarterback Zach Wilson threw for 252 yards and ran for a touchdown, and Skyler Southam booted three field goals for BYU. Stansbury High graduate and BYU linebacker Zayne Anderson missed the game after suffering a shoulder injury earlier this season. BYU will travel to Amherst, Massachusetts, on Saturday to face UMass in a battle of Football Bowl Subdivision independents looking to become bowl-eligible.

Weber State University
football vs. Sacramento State

The Weber State football team, ranked fourth in the Football Championship Subdivision polls, built a 19-0 lead en route to a 26-14 win over Sacramento State in a Big Sky Conference game Saturday at Stewart Stadium in Ogden. The Wildcats (7-2, 5-1 Big Sky) got 129 yards and a touchdown from running back Josh Davis, and quarterback Jake Constantine threw two touchdown passes. Stansbury High graduate Landon Stice had four tackles, two tackles-for-loss and a sack for Weber State, and Iosua Opeta started at left tackle for the Wildcats. Weber State travels to Cedar City on Saturday to face in-state rival Southern Utah in the annual Beehive Bowl.

Southern Utah University
football vs. Montana

The Southern Utah football team’s struggles continued Saturday at Eccles Coliseum in Cedar City, as the Thunderbirds were on the wrong side of a 57-14 blowout against Montana in a Big Sky Conference contest. Montana jumped out to a 20-0 lead on the T-Birds (1-8, 1-5 Big Sky) in the first 9:12 of game action. SUU had just 241 yards of total offense and allowed the Grizzlies to gain 635 yards. Grantsville High graduate Gavin Eyre saw action in the game for Southern Utah, but did not record any statistics. SUU will play host to Weber State on Saturday.

Utah Jazz

The Jazz remained winless at Vivint Smart Home Arena this season, dropping a 124-111 decision to the Toronto Raptors on Monday night to fall to 4-6 overall and five games behind first-place Denver in the NBA’s Northwest Division early in the season. Utah led 31-30 after the first quarter, but was outscored 64-41 in the second and third quarters as Toronto (10-1) built a big lead. Alec Burks led the Jazz with 22 points off the bench as Utah played without Donovan Mitchell. Late last week, the Jazz lost both halves of a back-to-back, falling 110-100 to Memphis at home on Friday night before losing 103-88 in Denver on Saturday. Ricky Rubio had 22 points and 11 assists, Joe Ingles had 19 points and Jae Crowder had 18 in the loss to Memphis, and Crowder led the way with 21 points in the Denver game. Utah plays host to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday.

Real Salt Lake

RSL has some work to do in next Sunday’s second leg of the Western Conference semifinals after a 1-1 draw against Sporting Kansas City on Saturday at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy. Real Salt Lake, the sixth seed in the Western Conference, took a 1-0 lead early in the second half on Albert Rusnak’s 51st-minute goal, but conceded the equalizer just nine minutes later. As away goals are the first tiebreaker should the second leg also end in a draw, it is imperative that RSL either wins the second leg or avoids a scoreless draw. The Claret and Cobalt advanced to the conference semifinals with a thrilling 3-2 win on the road over LAFC in the knockout round, overcoming a 2-1 second-half deficit with a spectacular goal from Damir Kreilach in the 58th minute and an own goal in the 69th minute. Kreilach had a goal in the 21st minute as well.
