SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Just before the ball dropped on the New Year, the Utah Utes quite literally dropped the ball in the Holiday Bowl. The Utes committed six turnovers in the 31-20 loss in which they also gave up 28 straight points in the third after leading 20-3 at halftime.

Utah quarterback Jason Shelley put it simply.

“We just lacked ball security in the third quarter,” said Shelley. “We had way too many turnovers. Pretty much cost us the game.”

Fans React

After the game ended, many Ute fans took to social to express their disappointment in the Holiday Bowl’s outcome.
