SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah running back Ty Jordan ran for a touchdown in a third consecutive contest during the Utes’ game against the Washington State Cougars.

The Utes hosted the Cougars at Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday, December 19.

With 6:09 to go in the third quarter, Jordan scampered up the middle for a five-yard touchdown.

It was the freshman tailback’s third straight game with a rushing score and his third touchdown run in the last two weeks.

Jordan’s run cut Washington State’s lead to 28-14.

After the score, Jordan had 10 carries for 77 yards and a touchdown.

The Utes’ first touchdown of the game came during the second quarter on a 91-yard touchdown pass from Jake Bentley to Britain Covey.

Bentley was replaced at quarterback by Drew Lisk just before halftime after the Cougars took a 28-7 lead over the Utes.

Lisk started the second half for Utah.
