Terrance Cain threw two touchdown passes, Eddie Wide rushed for 111 yards on 17 carries and #24 Utah (5-1, 2-0) breezed past UNLV (2-5, 0-3) late in Las Vegas. Wide's TD run down the right side gave the Utes a 20 point lead that sealed the deal early in the 4thquarter.

UNLV QB Omar Clayton was 23 of 44 for 223 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.  The loss is the fourth straight for the Rebels and has given up an average of 46.8 points a game in that span.  

The Utes took advantage of their first-half opportunities building a 28-6 halftime lead.

Cain had two 6-yard touchdown passes and a 3-yard run in the half. His first TD pass was to Aiona Key just inside the right sideline of the end zone late in the first quarter.

Cain found Ben Hendy on the right side with 7:29 before the half to make it 14-6. His 3-yard run, which came with 5:17 left in the half, was set up by Robert Johnson's fifth interception of the season, which was returned 31 yards to inside the UNLV 10.

The win for the Utes comes as revenge for an embarrassing 27-0 loss to UNLV back in the 2007 season.  Utah is now 26-2 since that game, with the only losses coming at BYU and at Oregon. 

The Utah football program reached the 600 win plateau and has an all time record of 600-418-31.
