SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah was in a potentially season-changing scenario but grappling with one of its biggest weaknesses.
The Utes were on the 3-yard line Saturday and needing a two-point conversion to beat USC and hold onto a share of the Pac-12 South lead. But Utah's red zone performance hasn't been one of its strengths this season.
Quarterback Troy Williams took the snap with 42 seconds remaining and rolled right after the first read was covered to the left. He tried to outrun the defense to the sideline and was tackled at the 2-yard line in the 28-27 loss.
