The #17 Utah Utes (2-0) displayed another mediocre performance as Utah squeaked by with a ten point victory.  San Jose State (0-2), coming off a 56-3 beat down from USC showed determination after Brandon Rutley's two yard run to tie the game at 7 in the second quarter.  QB Jordan La Secla had a breakout game.  He threw for 269 yards with a TD and an INT to lead the Spartans.  On the other end, Terrance Cain completed 18 of his 31 attempts for 248 yards with a TD.

After a scoreless third quarter, the Utes finally broke through with a Terrance Cain pass to Jereme Brooks for a 51 yard TD reception.  About four minutes later Eddie Wide extended Utah's lead 21-7 with a 15 yard run.  Later, SJSU scored with a La Secla pass but it was too little too late for the Spartans. 

 In a game of terrible broadcasting and commentating, you couldn't help but feel you were watching a high school football game. Oh and add in terrible camera work for the tri-fecta.

 Utah RB Matt Asiata was sidelined with an injury but it's a minor injury and should not affect him for next week's game. Second and third string running backs Eddie Wide and Sausan Shakerin showed a positive side for the Utes in a game that was negative in all sorts of ways. The Utah Utes execution needs work after 11 penalties for 69 yards.  If RJ Stanford, Brandon Burton and the rest of the Utes play as they did today, the 16 game winning streak will end in Eugene.
