4:27 | Huskies 10, Utah 3 Right on cue, the Huskies defense makes a play. And who other than Byron Murphy, who makes his second interception of the game to get UW the ball right back.
5:10 | Huskies 10, Utah 3 With a chance to put the game away, Peyton Henry’s 38-yard field goal attempt is BLOCKED! That kick came on the heels of a third-and-short that Andre Baccellia couldn’t quite extend his arm far enough to convert. Utah takes over, and the Huskies’ defense will need to hold again.
0:06 | Huskies 10, Utah 3 This one doesn’t go for six, but the Huskies come up with another interception. This time it’s Jordan Miller on a deep lob from Utah QB Jason Shelley — just one play after a pass interference call on Miller.
1:05 | Huskies 10, Utah 3 The way this game is going, this is how the Huskies will need to win it: Byron Murphy makes a wild interception and takes it to the house!
11:17 | Huskies 3, Utah 3 All tied up in the Pac-12 title game, and the Utes earned these points. Kicker Jason Gay is good from 53 yards out to get the Utes on the board.
0:00 | Huskies 3, Utah 0 The Utes crossed into Husky territory for the first time tonight and were approaching field-goal range, but a Taylor Rapp sack ended any hope of a score before the half.
3:08 | Huskies 3, Utah 0 Points! The Huskies are on the board. After another trip into Utah territory, the Huskies call on Peyton Henry, and he’s good from 29 yards for the game’s first score. Jake Browning couldn’t connect with TE Cade Otton on third-and-2.
14:12 | Huskies 0, Utah 0 UW has twice driven into Utah territory but both times the Huskies have come up empty handed. This time Jake Browning hits Ty Jones but Jones drops the pass, the ball bounces off a defender and the Utes come up with a pick. They, however, go three-and-out on the next drive and give the ball right back to the Huskies.
0:00 | Huskies 0, Utah 0 At the end of one, the Huskies are driving again. Aaron Fuller breaks away from his defender for a 27-yard gain to get UW into Utah territory.
5:59 | Huskies 0, Utah 0 Back-to-back three and outs for Utah and UW, though it was almost much worse for the Huskies.
8:20 | Huskies 0, Utah 0 The Huskies eat up nearly one half of the first quarter on a 13-play opening drive, but they come up empty. A Jake Browning pass tipped at the line of scrimmage set up a fourth-and-6 from Utah’s 23 that the Huskies aren’t able to convert.
4:50 p.m. As expected, this one won’t get underway right at 5 p.m. It appears we’re looking at about a 5:20 p.m. kickoff. When they do, keep an eye out for Trey Adams at left tackle. He’s been active the past two weeks, but has yet to make a start.
