True freshman Jordan Wynn earned his first start at quarterback for Utah. He is the third true freshman quarterback to start for Utah. Going 18-for-28 for 297 yards and two touchdowns, Wynn bettered both freshman quarterbacks that came before him in their first starts - Ken Vierra in 1981 (6-for-9 for 168 yards and a touchdown) and Scott Cate in 1982 (8-for-21 for 140 yards and a touchdown).

Jordan Wynn was 6-for-8 for 127 yards with a touchdown pass in the first quarter.

With Eddie Wide and Sausan Shakerin both rushing for over 100 yards, it is the first time that Utah has had two 100-plus yard rushers in a game since Sept. 20, 2008 against Air Force, when Darrell Mack and Matt Asiata both had over 100 yards rushing.

Eddie Wide rushed for a career-high 145 yards (20 carries) for a school-record sixth-straight 100-yard rushing game. He breaks the old record of five consecutive 100-yard games, done by three players (Carl Monroe in 1982, Mike Anderson in 1998 and Darrell Mack in 2007).

Eddie Wide scored twice for the Utes, a 1-yard rush in the second quarter and a 35-yard rush in the third quarter.

Sausan Shakerin scored his first career touchdown in the third quarter off a 20-yard pass reception from Jordan Wynn. He also scored in the fourth quarter on an eight-yard run.

Sausan Shakerin had a career-high 100 rushing yards on 16 carries. He also had three catches for 34 yards receiving.

Jereme Brooks' 135 receiving yards is a career-high. Brooks had six catches in the game.
