Utah slides by Colorado 24-17
UTAH 24, COLORADO 17

By MATTHEW COLES
Associated Press

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Kelvin York rushed for 132 yards and two
touchdowns and Trevor Reilly had a late interception to help
Utah slide by Colorado 24-17 on Saturday afternoon.

In a matchup of the two teams at the bottom of the Pac-12 South,
the Utes raced to a 21-0 first-half lead before the Buffs roared
back.

On fourth-and-10, Sefo Liufau completed a 14-yard TD pass to
Nelson Spruce that made it 24-17 with 2:30 remaining. The
ensuing onside kick bounded high over the Utah line and out of
bounds.

But the Buffs forced a Utah punt that was downed at the 10 - Tom
Hackett's third kick inside the 10-yard-line.

On the next play, defensive end Reilly dropped back from the
line and caught the ball at the 21-yard-line. A year of
frustration was evident as Reilly threw the ball high into the
south end zone stands before he was greeted by a horde of
celebrating teammates on the sidelines.

Adam Schulz, a former walk-on who was pressed into service when
starter Travis Wilson was sidelined with an intracranial artery
injury three weeks ago, completed 19 of 33 passes for 233 yards
for Utah.

Utah broke a five-game losing skid and Dres Anderson became the
seventh Ute to reach 1,000 receiving yards in a season, the
first since David Reed had 1,188 in 2009. He caught seven passes
for 94 yards against the Buffs, which put him at 1,002 for the
season.

Liufau was pressured mercilessly in the first half but finished
23 of 46 for 241 yards and two touchdowns for the Buffs.

In the third quarter, Liufau finally had time to throw and
lofted a pass to Scott Fernandez down the middle of the field
for a 34-yard touchdown.

Just when it looked like the Utes would put the game out of
reach late in the third quarter, the Buffaloes made a big play.
Jake Murphy caught a pass near the goal line and as he reached
for the end zone, he lost the ball and Jeffrey Hall returned the
fumble for 42 yards. A 15-yard face mask penalty on Schulz
tacked on 15 yards.

The ensuing drive stalled at the Utah 2, but Will Oliver kicked
a 19-yard field goal to draw Colorado within 21-10 with 12:17 to
play.

Andy Phillips countered with a 46-yard field goal for Utah
before the Buffs made their late push.

The opportunistic Utes used two fumble recoveries to spark short
touchdown drives in the first quarter. The Buffaloes had just 11
fumbles all season but Liufau was sacked by Tenny Palepoi and
lost the ball at the Colorado 34.

Schulz completed three passes on the drive to Jake Murphy, the
last of which was a 16-yard touchdown. Murphy, in his third game
back from a broken wrist, had eight catches for 93 yards.

Later in the first quarter, Liufau was hit just before he threw
by Hunter Dimick and LT Tuipolutu took the ball off a bounce and
rumbled to the Colorado 6-yard-line. On the next play, York ran
up the middle and Utah led 14-0.

York scored again from one yard out after Dres Anderson
highlighted an 80-yard drive with a 49-yard dazzling catch. In
his final game as a Ute, York posted a career-highs in yards and
carries (31).

In the first half, Addison Gillam intercepted Schulz and
returned it to the Utah 5. But the Buffs couldn't punch it in
and Reilly, who had 14 tackles, stuffed Tony Jones for a 4-yard
loss on fourth-and-goal.

Both teams have struggled since joining the Pac-12 in 2011 and
this season-ending contest have been tight all three years with
Utah claiming the last two.

The Utes, who beat Stanford and lost nail-biters to Arizona
State and Oregon State, have wondered all year what could have
been without the key injuries and few friendly bounces of the
ball.

After a 10 consecutive season ending in bowl games, the Utes
have now finished back-to-back campaigns with losing records.
