SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Utes quarterback Tyler Huntley threw his second touchdown pass of the game when he found receiver Samson Nacua wide open for a 52-yard score.

That put Utah ahead 14-7 early in the second quarter.

Nacua scored his first receiving touchdown of the season and only his third catch on the year and second of the game.

Last season, Nacua led the Utah wide receivers with five touchdowns last season.

Huntley threw his seventh touchdown pass of the season and to that point in the first half had completed seven of his first nine attempts for 172 yards and two touchdowns.

The senior quarterback is one of 16 FBS quarterbacks to have not been sacked to this point in the season.

Utah had to play the Cougars without star running back Zack Moss and wide receiver Britain Covey, who were out with injuries.

Entering the game against Washington State, Utah has lost four straight games.
