SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The University of Utah football team won their fourth straight game after a 41-10 win over UCLA. The Utes are alone at the top of the Pac-12 South Division. Fans took to social media with reaction on the win, the sweep of the California schools and the recent success of the offense.

Four Game Winning Streak

The Utes finished the month of October with a 4-0 record. They knocked off Stanford and UCLA on the road, and Arizona and USC at home.

Katie Lewis mentioned her enjoyment in watching the Utes recent run.

Jillian used a photo of Utah left tackle Jackson Barton to describe her feelings after the Utes win.

40 Points Scored In Four Straight Games

The last time the Utes scored over 40 points in four consecutive games was in 2004. Utah surpassed 40 points in six straight games that season, they also finished undefeated and beat Pittsburgh in the Fiesta Bowl.

Darren Jaynes wrote a nice apology to Utah offensive coordinator Troy Taylor since the Utes have really been clicking on offense in the last four games.

Rhino Ute had a pretty good view of a Matt Gay field goal as he celebrates the Utes scoring over 40 points.

James Williams tweeted about the success of the Utah offense especially against the three California schools that the Utes defeated.

UCLA Student Section Nearly Empty

Once the game was out of hand for the Bruins, their student supporters didn’t stick around to the end. The Utes fans who traveled to the Rose Bowl made it known that they outnumbered the UCLA fans in the stadium.

Andrew Larsen compared the UCLA turn out to Stanford based off the shots on the ESPN broadcast.

California Sweep

The win over UCLA completed the three game sweep over the California schools that Utah faced this season. The wins over Stanford, USC and UCLA saw Utah beat the California Pac-12 schools for the second time since joining the Conference. It is the third time that the Utes beat both the Trojans and Bruins in the same season.

Eric Linden has a message for high school recruits in the state of California.

Same End Zone

An interesting note, Los Angeles native Eric Peterson attended the game with seats in the south end zone, but all six touchdowns were scored in the north end zone. Even more interesting, all three field goals were scored in the south end zone.

Utah will face Arizona State on the road on Saturday at 2 p.m. on the Pac-12 Network.
