PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Sophomore quarterback Adam Schulz made his second start for Utah and completed 21 of 46 passes for 347 yards, but Utah fell to Washington State, 49-37. He threw three touchdown passes and was intercepted twice.

Utah's first score came when Kelvin York ran 14 yards up the middle late in the first quarter for a touchdown. York carried 8 times and caught a pass during the 12-play, 75-yard drive.

After a WSU punt, Utah took over and Schulz immediately completed a 47-yard pass to Dres Anderson, putting the ball on WSU's 16. York ran three times, the last a 2-yard touchdown burst. That narrowed WSU's lead to 21-14 early in the second quarter.

Washington State drove to the Utah 10 on their next possession, but had to settle for Andrew Furney's 27-yard field goal for a 24-14 lead.

After a Utah punt, WSU drove 78 yards and scored on Halliday's 9-yard pass to Marcus Mason. But the conversion kick was blocked by Daniel Nielson and the Cougars led 30-14.

After a short punt gave Utah possession at the WSU 49, Schulz fired a 28-yard pass to Geoffrey Norwood, and six plays later hit Anderson with a 3-yard touchdown pass. An attempt at a 2-point conversion pass failed.

Utah's Andy Phillips kicked a 34-yard field goal on the opening drive of the second half to cut WSU's lead to 33-23. Furney replied with a 28-yard field goal after a WSU drive stalled on the Utah 11.

Schulz fired an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jake Murphy on the next possession to cut WSU's lead to 36-30 with 6:58 left in the third.

 

 

WSU's Gabe Marks fumbled the ball after catching a pass and Utah's Reginald Porter recovered on the Utes' 36. On the first play, Schulz fired a 64-yard touchdown pass to Murphy to cut WSU's lead to 43-37 with 12:28 left in the game.

Both teams punted on their next possessions.

Then Halliday fired a 71-yard pass Dom Williams, who caught the ball and outran Utah defenders into the end zone for a 49-37 lead with 4:42 left in the game. A 2-point conversion pass was intercepted.
