Utah righted itself in the rain at Rice-Eccles Stadium and finally beat Washington State.
The No. 19 Utes responded to last weekend’s frustrating loss at USC with a strong offensive and defensive showing Saturday night in a 38-13 win.
Utah posted nearly 500 yards in the first three quarters and held the prolific Cougars scoreless in the second half.
The Utes delivered what coach Kyle Whittingham labeled “a complete game” overall and had a remarkable effort by a secondary that “wanted redemption” after giving up 368 yards passing and 30 points to USC.
