Utah sophomore QB Tyler Huntley completed 21-of-39 passes for 305 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in Saturday's 33-25 loss to Washington State.

Huntley did not come up with his touchdown pass until midway through the fourth quarter. That score drew the Utes to within one possession, but they were unable to find the end zone again after the sophomore's scoring toss. Seven of Huntley's nine interceptions on the season have come in just two games. In addition to his three-pick debacle on Saturday, he was picked off four times by Arizona State back on October 21. Huntley's touchdown passes have also come in bunches -- he hit on 10 of his 13 in just three games (against San Jose State, Oregon and UCLA).

Utah redshirt junior WR Raelon Singleton caught six passes for 87 yards with a score in a 33-25 loss to Washington State on Saturday.

The Utes needed a wideout to step up with Darren Carrington (undisclosed) out against Washington State, and Singleton -- along with Demarki Simpkins (4-99) stepped up as much as they could with Tyler Huntley struggling to throw the football with accuracy. His 12-yard touchdown from Huntley made it a one score game at 33-25 with just over six minutes left in the game, but Utah was unable to procure the tying score on two late drives. Utah will travel to Washington next week.

When asked if Utah redshirt senior WR Darren Carrington (undisclosed) would play against Washington State on Saturday, HC Kyle Whittingham said, "Sure, we hope so."

"That would be ideal," Whittingham said on Tuesday. While these statements are not as definitive as we would like, it sounds like there's a solid chance that Carrington manages to play against the Cougars on Saturday. The Oregon transfer has been as-advertised since joining the Utes. He currently sits atop the Pac-12 leaderboard with an average of 92.2 receiving yards per game. His 6.4 receptions per game ranks second in the conference.

The Senior Bowl spoke to one NFL scout who called Utah redshirt senior WR Darren Carrington a "no-brainer" talent-wise, "but there's just so much baggage there with a bunch of different things."

Carrington caught nine passes for 130 yards on his former Oregon teammates on October 28. This offseason, Carrington was booted off the Oregon football team by new head coach Willie Taggart following a DUI charge on July 1. It was not his first off-field incident. He will certainly be polled and questioned by interested teams during the draft process.

Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah sophomore RB Zack Moss ran for 145 years and two scores on 22 carries in a 48-17 thrashing of UCLA on Friday.

This game was close at halftime, but Moss (5'10/200) and the Utah offense throttled the UCLA defense from the third quarter on. His three-yard plunge in the first quarter gave Utah a 7-0 lead, and a 20-yard burst made it 31-10 late in the third quarter. UCLA's run defense is just awful, and Moss and the rest of the Utes offense took advantage. Utah will take on Washington State next week.
Nov 4 - 1:01 AM

Utah sophomore QB Tyler Huntley completed 15-of-22 passes for 234 yards with four touchdown passes and rushed for 93 yards in a 48-17 thrashing of UCLA on Friday night.

Huntley wasn't playing well in his last two games, but excellent on Friday night against a lethargic UCLA defense. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound signal-caller showed his impressive speed, and was also much more accurate throwing the football on short, intermediate and deep passes. It's probably too late for Utah to get back in the Pac-12 South race, but there's clearly upside in Huntley's right arm and speed. He'll have a tougher test next week against Washington State.
Nov 4 - 1:01 AM

Utah redshirt senior WR Darren Carrington caught nine passes for 130 yards in Saturday's 41-20 loss to Oregon.

Carrington (6'2/191) started out the season like gangbusters, logging three straight games of 100 yards receiving. Due to a toughening schedule and injury to QB Tyler Huntley, he then went through a stretch of three games in which he failed to surpass the century mark. With Saturday's nice rebound showing, the redshirt senior is now working to a respectable 54-779-5 receiving line.
Oct 28 - 9:37 PM

Utah sophomore QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder) threw four interceptions and completed 19-of-35 passes for 155 yards in a 30-10 loss to Arizona State on Saturday.

He added 34 yards on the ground on eight carries. This statline is ugly, and to be quite honest, it doesn't accurately describe how poor Huntley played. He was inaccurate, showed zero zip, and threw the ball into the Sun Devils hands four times. Huntley will look to rebound next week against Oregon.
Oct 21 - 6:49 PM

Utah junior S Corrion Ballard was ejected for targeting in the third quarter of Saturday's game against Arizona State.

Ballard will have to sit out the first half of next weekend's game against Oregon as punishment for his sketchy hit. The penalty gave Arizona State a 1st-and-goal situation.
Oct 21 - 5:52 PM

Utah sophomore QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder) warmed up with the first-team offense and will likely start against Arizona State on Saturday.

Huntley has sat out each of the past two weeks, but looks to be good to go on Saturday. He showed no limitation in regards to the shoulder during pregame warmups. Troy Williams will serve as his backup against the Sun Devils assuming no late setbacks.
Oct 21 - 3:24 PM

Utah sophomore QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Arizona State.

Huntley has been sidelined for the last two games due to the shoulder injury. He managed to practice this week, but it is still not known whether he will start for the Utes against the Sun Devils. Troy Williams would see the start if Huntley can't play. We'll update this situation as information becomes available.
Oct 21 - 2:17 PM

While Utah sophomore QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder) practiced this week, he is not a lock to start against Arizona State on Saturday.

When Utes HC Kyle Whittingham was asked during the practice week whether Huntley would be able to play on Saturday, he said, "There’s always a chance. Until they tell me he’s ruled out, there’s always a chance." The sophomore has missed each of the last two contests due to a shoulder ailment, with Troy Williams starting in his place in losses to Stanford and USC. For what it's worth, Huntley is listed as starter on the depth chart for Saturday's showdown with the Sun Devils. We're viewing him as a game-time decision unless Utah passes along word to the contrary.
Oct 20 - 4:47 PM

Utah sophomore QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder) is listed as the starter for this week's game against Arizona State.

It's a strong early-week indication that Huntley will return from injury. He's been out since suffering a shoulder injury in a win over Arizona on September 22. Troy Williams will return to backup duties if Huntley is indeed back.
Oct 17 - 1:49 PM
Zack Moss - RB - Utes

Utah sophomore RB Zack Moss ran for 141 yards on 20 carries in a 28-27 loss to USC on Saturday.

Moss (5'10/200) blistered the Trojan defense in the first half, but couldn't get much going in the second half. He still has one of his best statistical games of the year, and he showed impressive burst and the ability to make tacklers miss. It just wasn't quite enough. Utah will look to end their two-game losing streak against Arizona State next week.
Oct 14 - 11:55 PM

Utah redshirt senior QB Troy Williams will get the start against USC on Saturday.

Williams is playing in place of starter Tyler Huntley (shoulder), and has beaten out QB Cooper Bateman for the starting job against the Trojans. Williams was the starter in Utah's victory over USC last season.
