Hunt­ley stands out as Utah routs Ari­zona

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - SPORTS -

Tyler Hunt­ley threw for two touch­downs, ran for an­other and caught a 58-yard TD pass, lead­ing Utah past vis­it­ing Ari­zona 42-10 on Fri­day night.

On a play that typ­i­fied the game, Hunt­ley handed off to Zack Moss, who tossed the foot­ball to Bri­tain Covey com­ing the other di­rec­tion. Covey, a high school quar­ter­back who is Utah’s lead­ing re­ceiver, threw a per­fect spi­ral to Hunt­ley.

Utah (4-2, 2-2 Pac-12) led 35-0 less than two min­utes into the sec­ond half.

Chase Hansen sacked Khalil Tate late in the first quar­ter and the Wild­cats’ quar­ter­back was left limp­ing. Ja­marye Joiner re­placed Tate for two se­ries be­fore giv­ing way to Rhett Ro­driguez, who threw for 226 yards for Ari­zona (3-4, 2-2).

“Run­ning was out of the ques­tion and even drop­ping back and hand­ing it off (was hard),” Ari­zona coach Kevin Sum­lin said about Tate. “I saw a player that could barely move, so we had to make a change.”

Hunt­ley, who com­pleted 14 of 19 passes for 201 yards, con­nected with Sam­son Nacua for an 8-yard touch­down that capped a 15-play, 75-yard open­ing drive.

In ad­di­tion to 64 yards rush­ing, Hunt­ley com­pleted his long­est pass of the sea­son (68 yards) down the right side­line to De­mari Simp­kins for the Utes’ third touch­down.

Utah’s had 230 yards rush­ing to com­ple­ment 265 yards through the air. Ari­zona was held to 72 yards on the ground, 130 un­der its av­er­age. #23 South Flor­ida 25, Tulsa 24: Coby Weiss kicked a 22-yard field goal with two sec­onds left as the Bulls (6-0, 2-0 Amer­i­can Ath­letic) de­feated the host Golden Hur­ri­cane (1-5, 0-3). South Flor­ida over­came a 14-point deficit in the fi­nal 7:10. San Diego State 21, Air Force 17: Ryan Agnew threw a 29-yard touch­down pass to tight end Parker Hous­ton with 6:10 to go to lift the host Aztecs (5-1, 2-0 Moun­tain West) past the Fal­cons (2-4, 0-3).
