2014 Las Vegas Bowl: Utah Dominating the Rams 24-10 at Halftime

Some wild plays have led to a high scoring first quarter, and a very entertaining half.

LAS VEGAS – The Utah Utes and the Colorado State Rams have been responsible for the highest scoring 1st Quarter in Las Vegas Bowl history.  That being said, it has been mostly Utes in this game.

The Rams have not been able to get anything going on the ground, as they only had 13 rush yards in the first half.  On the opposite side, Utah has been running all over the Rams defense, accumulating 203 rush yards in the half.

The Utes opened their first drive on an extremely complicated trick play, which involved a flea-flicker and reverse pass.  Travis Wilson would score on a 8-yard run play after that.  After another Colorado State stalled drive, the Utes continued their assault with a 16-yard touchdown pass by Wilson.

Colorado State responded with some trickeration on their own.  Garrett Grayson threw a reverse pass to Charles Lovett who threw back to Grayson.  Grayson then took it to the house 39 yards out.

After trading field goals, the Utes drove down the field, only to miss the 38-yard field goal attempt at the half.

The Rams are going to have to make some heavy adjustments on defense in the second half if they want to win this game, as well as getting Treyon Jarrells and Dee Hart more involved in the offense.
