Washington Vs. Utah Score Update: Huskies End First Half With Erik Folk Field Goal, Lead Utah 10-7

After the Washington Huskies and Utah Utes both scored touchdowns within the first seven minutes of the game, the two teams traded possession of the football for the rest of the first half. Huskies kicker Erik Folk gave Washington the 10-7 lead after converting a 44 yard field goal with time expiring in the first half. 

Utah blew two consecutive opportunities to score touchdowns by turning the ball over twice in the red zone in the second quarter. First, after driving 53 yards all the way to Washington's 13 yard line, freshman safety Sean Parker picked off Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn.

Then, after the Huskies failed to get anything done on the subsequent offensive possession and punted back to Utah, the Utes drove the ball 34 yards down the field all the way to Washington's fifteen yard line. However, the Utes turned the ball over again, this time a fumble by Dres Anderson forced by the Huskies' Desmond Trufant.

Second half stats are relatively even, with the difference so far being turnovers; Washington with one, Utah with three. The Huskies have scored all ten of their points off of Utah's turnovers.

Washington's offense has struggled mightily so far. Head Coach Steve Sarkisian will have to get creative in the second half and figure out how to get the run game going without quarterback Keith Price's mobility in the pocket. Price is noticeably limping and will have to be careful the rest of the game to avoid further injuring his legs.
