SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The one constant all season for Utah was the ability to control the trenches against any opponent.
With a possible playoff berth and first Pac-12 title in school history on the line, the Utes more than met their match against Oregon.
CJ Verdell ran for 208 yards and broke open the game with two long touchdown runs in the fourth quarter, and No. 13 Oregon spoiled No. 5 Utah's playoff hopes with a 37-15 victory in the Pac-12 championship game Friday night.
