After the touchdown, Huntley was up to 126 passing and 34 rushing yards and one touchdown. Simpkins caught his second pass of the game and was up to 12 yards on the night. Huntley threw his 19th touchdown pass of the season, while Simpkins caught his second of the year.
It was a tough night for the Utah offense as they were struggling on offense. The Utes didn’t get past the 50-yard line on offense until the end of the second quarter. The Longhorns have done a good job at limiting the Utes on the offensive side of the ball.
Huntley is play in his last game for the Utes, along with running back Zack Moss, who has 14 carries for 61 yards.
