That Utah almost won a huge conference road game while averaging 3.3 yards per play is a strange, impressive backhanded achievement of sorts. The Utes got some turnover help, and ASU blew scoring opportunities as badly as they did, settling for five field goals to Utah's four. Both teams missed one FG, but Utah suffered its miss on a 35-yarder in OT. Ouch.
