SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Senior Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley has been named one of five finalists for the 2019 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given annually to the top senior quarterback by the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Foundation.

The award acknowledges performance on the field, as well as character, citizenship, integrity and those who honor the game.

Huntley has had a special 2019 season to date, he currently ranks fifth overall in ESPN’s Total QBR Rating (89.5) and is second in the FBS and first in the Pac-12 in completion percentage (.738). He also ranks in the top 10 in the FBS in pass efficiency (No. 6, 182.5), yards per pass attempt (No. 4, 10.8), passing yards per completion (no. 10, 14.46) and passes had intercepted (tied for No. 2, 1).

On top of all that, Huntley has earned Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week twice this season after the Washington State and Washington games.

Huntley is also one of 16 semifinalists for the Davey O’Brien Award and is on the watch list for the Manning Award.

The last Ute to be named a finalist for the award came back in 2008 when Brian Johnson was named one of the five finalists. Although, Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell ultimately won the award.

UCLA Game Notes

The Utes and Bruins are scheduled to kick things off from Rice Eccles Stadium at 6 p.m. this upcoming Saturday.

Both the Utes and Bruins control their own destiny in the Pac-12 South.

UCLA is 2-3 on the road this season as they hope to give the Utes their first loss at home.
