SALT LAKE CITY (AP) This was not the season Utah dreamt of in August as the players and coaching staff had aspirations of winning a Pac-12 South division title and earning a chance at a conference championship. The Utes, however, were all smiles Saturday after finishing the regular season with a .500 record.
Zack Moss ran for a career-high 196 yards and two touchdowns as Utah defeated Colorado 34-13 in the regular-season finale to earn win No. 6 and officially become bowl eligible.
"It takes some of the sting out of a frustrating season," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. "This team was close. They're fighters. As frustrating as some of those losses were, to have them pull themselves back together and have another effort like tonight was a credit to them.
