SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Utes quarterback Tyler Huntley ran in a 15-yard touchdown with 22 seconds left in the second quarter to cap off a spectacular performance in the first half.

Huntley has accounted for all three of Utah’s first half touchdowns with two through the air and one on the ground.

In the first half against Washington State, Huntley completed 14 of his 21 pass attempts for 242 yards and two touchdowns, while running the ball four times for 32 yards and another score.

On the last drive before halftime, Huntley had a fantastic play on fourth down as he kept the play alive that led to a touchdown.

During the second quarter, Huntley passed legend Alex Smith on the school’s all-time passing yards list.

Huntley has thrown for over 5,203 yards in his four-year career at Utah in order to pass Smith, who played for the Utes from 2002-04.

The Utes just inducted the 2004 BCS Busting team led by Urban Meyer and Alex Smith to an undefeated season and a win over Pittsburgh in the Fiesta Bowl.

KSL Sports’ Scott Mitchell holds the school record for most career passing yards.
