John White ran for a career-high 205
yards, Jon Hays tossed two touchdown passes and Utah's defense
forced four turnovers as the Utes beat Oregon State 27-8 on
Saturday night for their first Pac-12 Conference win.
Utah (4-4, 1-4) busted open a close game with 21 points in a
7-minute span of the second quarter, starting with Hays' 35-yard
touchdown pass to Dres Anderson.
White added a 6-yard scoring run four minutes later and Hays put
Utah ahead 24-0 with a 3-yard TD pass to DeVonte Christopher.
Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion had a fourth-quarter TD
pass but was intercepted three times and sacked six. He finished 27
of 49 for 231 yards.
The Beavers (2-6, 2-3) still haven't won back-to-back road games
