Utah Utes Game Notes
Bryson Barnes completed 17 of 30 passes for 267 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions during Saturday’s 35-28 loss against Washington. He also had six rushes for 39 yards.
Barnes almost led his team to an upset, but his two interceptions didn’t help matters in the narrow loss. Utah also had some tough calls go against them, and the Huskies got away with a couple of PI penalties. Despite the loss, the Utes are still on track for a bowl game, and Barnes should continue to lead the offense.
Arizona Wildcats Game Notes
Noah Fifita was 21-for-35 passing for 214 yards and two touchdowns during Saturday’s 34-31 win over Colorado.
Colorado led the entire game and it was up to Fifita to take them down the field in the final minutes. He drove 87 yards to set up a game-winning field goal. Fifita tied a record last week with his fourth selection as Pac-12 Freshman of the Week, and he could be in line for the honor again after beating the Buffaloes.
