SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah true freshman running back Ty Jordan gave the Utes a much needed touchdown in the second half against Colorado.
Jordan had two plays with big runs on Utah’s first offensive drive of the second half. The first play was a 35-yard run by Jordan to put Utah at the Colorado 25-yard line.
Jake Bentley threw a 7-yard pass to Solomon Enis before Jordan ran into the end zone from 18-yards out. That put Utah within 4-points of the 21st ranked Buffaloes.
