Utah strikes first

Utah has scored the first points of bowl season, scoring a touchdown in the second quarter of the Poinsettia Bowl. Plenty of time for more action, but only 32 of the 90 contestants in the pool picked the Utes to win, a victory here would put a lot of people in second place!


Utah wins 35-32, holding off a last minute comeback from Navy who scored on their longest TD pass of the year and recovered the onside kick, but lost the ball on an interception when their receiver slipped. Bowl season starts off with a bang!

    10-7 Navy, he should add. That really WAS a drive by!

    I knew it was a mistake to shut the game off at halftime. Stupid time difference between West Coast and East Coast.

    Living in Maryland for a bunch of years now, I’ve grown accustomed to rooting for the Mids (when they aren’t playing Maryland). Stupid Utes.

    What a dumb pick to end the game. The Navy QB should’ve never made that throw, it was awful.
