SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A week after limping off the Los Angeles Coliseum field defeated and hurt, Tyler Huntley felt as if he was walking on air as he skipped off the wet turf at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
Huntley, who was rumored to be a game-time decision, passed for two touchdowns and ran for two more, powering No. 19 Utah over Washington State 38-13 in the rain on Saturday night.
Meanwhile, WSU coach Mike Leach was more focused on his own team’s deficiencies than any of Huntley’s brilliance.
“It’s difficult to say how tough Utah is because they had token resistance on both sides of the ball from us. We’re a very soft team. . . fat, dumb, happy, and entitled,” Leach said.
Huntley completed 21 of 30 passes for 334 yards. He didn’t attempt a pass in the fourth quarter as Utah (4-1 overall, 1-1 Pac-12) went conservative to claim its first win against the Cougars (3-2, 0-2) since 2012.
