Utah 62  Oregon 20

No. 13 Oregon is used to putting up record-setting performances against opponents. The Ducks received a taste of their own medicine however, as No. 18 Utah exploded for seven offensive touchdowns and made a statement as the Ducks allowed the most points at home in school history.

Player of the game

  • Utah quarterback Travis Wilson, who entered the day questionable with a shoulder injury, passed for 227 yards and rushed for another 100. The senior passed for four scores and added a touchdown on the ground for the third straight game. 

Key stats

  • The loss is the biggest in Oregon history since falling 63-0 to Nebraska in 1985.
  • Utah punted on its first drive of the game but then scored on its next eight possessions.
  • The Utes scored their most-ever points against a Pac-12 team since joining the league in 2011.
  • Utah running back Devontae Booker rushed for 98 yards but failed to score a rushing touchdown for the first time this season, though he made up for it by throwing a 25-yard touchdown pass on a trick play early in the third quarter.
  • With the loss, Oregon fell to 20-9 all-time against Utah.
  • Utah amassed 530 yards of total offense and converted both of its fourth-down attempts.
  • The Ducks have trailed entering the fourth quarter in all six losses under head coach Mark Helfrich.
