Utah redshirt senior edge rusher Kylie Fitts has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Fitts (6'4/260) has missed most of the season with an undisclosed injury, and was believed to have applied for a medical redshirt, he also played in just one game in 2016. In 2015, however, the edge rusher picked up seven sacks and looked like one of the better pass-rushers in the Pac-12 conference. If the medicals check out, he could be a mid-round pick.
Nov 20 - 8:51 PM

Utah sophomore QB Tyler Huntley threw for 293 yards on 19-of-27 passing with two touchdowns and a pick in a 33-30 loss to Washington on Saturday.

Huntley also added 48 yards on the ground on a whopping 48 carries with a rushing score. The Utes fell in this one, but it had little to do with his play. He showed impressive accuracy on intermediate throws, and both of his touchdown passes to Raelon Singleton were well-placed. The Huskies mostly kept him in the pocket, but he still showed off his impressive speed when able to break containment. The Utes will try and end their skid and make a bowl game next week when they face Colorado.
Nov 19 - 11:05 AM

Utah redshirt junior WR Raelon Singleton hauled in five catches for 81 yards and two scores in a 33-30 loss to Washington on Saturday.

Singleton was once again the go-to player for the Utes' passing offense, as Darren Carrington (undisclosed) was limited in his snap counts against the Huskies. Both of his touchdown catches were from Tyler Huntley; one on a 40-yard slant and another on a back-shoulder throw from 11 yards out. Singleton and the Utes will look to qualify for a bowl next week against Colorado.
Nov 19 - 2:00 AM

Utah redshirt senior WR Darren Darrington (undisclosed) is warming up ahead of their contest against Washington on Saturday.

Carrington was forced to miss last week's game against Washington State with the injury. Warming up doesn't always equal playing, but it certainly beats the alternative. If the transfer senior can't go, Demari Simpkins will be the top pass-catching option in the Utes offense against the tough Husky defense.
Nov 18 - 9:45 PM

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).
Nov 12 - 4:14 PM

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.
Nov 11 - 9:28 PM

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.
Nov 10 - 6:51 PM

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.
