Pasadena, CA (SportsNetwork.com) – Andy Phillips kicked a 29-yard field goal
with less than a minute remaining to give Utah a 30-28 upset win over No. 8
UCLA on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl.
Utah didn’t trail until late in the fourth quarter, when UCLA quarterback
Brett Hundley went up top and found Eldridge Massington for a 40-yard
touchdown to make it 28-27 in favor of the home team.
Devontae Booker led Utah down the field on the decisive possession, with his
15-yard run on 3rd-and-4 from the UCLA 32 setting up Phillips’ kick. Booker
carried a career-high 33 times for 156 yards.
Mobile QB Kendal Thompson relieved starter Travis Wilson early on and ignited
Utah’s offense. The transfer from Oklahoma completed 10-of-13 passes for 95
yards and a touchdown and ran for 83 yards.
Utah (4-1, 1-1 Pac-12) beat an AP top-10 team on the road for just the second
time in school history.
