Utah hangs on to keep lead in Pac-12 South

Tri-City Herald (Sunday) - - Sports -

Quar­ter­back Ja­son Shel­ley scored from 2 yards out to give Utah the lead for good mid­way through the fourth quar­ter and the Utes went on to win 32-25 on Satur­day.

The win kept the Utes on the top of the Pac-12 South Di­vi­sion. Utah is 5-3 in the con­fer­ence, a halfgame ahead of Ari­zona State, South­ern Cal and Ari­zona. South­ern Cal played Cal­i­for­nia late Satur­day night.

The fourth-quar­ter touch­down was Shel­ley’s sec­ond of the game. He scored from 2 yards out in the first quar­ter and a 10-0 lead.

Utah took a 19-7 lead into half­time as Matt Gay hit three sec­ond-quar­ter field goals. Gay had five in the game.

But the Ducks ral­lied in the sec­ond half as Justin Herbert threw a pair of tochdown passes. The sec­ond one gave the Ducks a 25-22 lead with 8:15 left in the game.
