Utah vs. Washington score update: Huskies held scoreless by Utes in first

Utah quarterback Travis Wilson has completed 3-of-7 passes for 18 yards. Washington QB Keith Price is 5-for-9 for 32 yards. Based on the stats, one would assume the Huskies have had the better first quarter. That is an incorrect assumption. Despite having an abysmal completion percentage, Wilson and the Utes have an 8-0 lead over Washington after one quarter.

The only offense of the game thus far came on a running play. Wilson handed off the ball to running back John White, who rushed for 46 yards to score the touchdown. Utah caught the Huskies off guard by going for two and Jake Murphy secured the two points for the Utes. From that point on it's been a lot of punts.

Bishop Sankey has done the most work for the Huskies. He is currently the only rusher the team has used, carrying the ball eight times for 52 yards. Leading Washington in receiving is Kasen Williams with two receptions for 32 yards. On third down conversions, the team is 2-for-5, but have yet to turn those successes into points.
