SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Utes took advantage of a turnover by the Washington State Cougars and turned it into a touchdown run by Jaylon Glover before halftime.

The Cougars hosted the Utes at Martin Stadium in Pullman, Washington.

With 2:54 left in the second quarter, Utah punted the football to Washington State. The Cougars were unable to catch the kick and it made contact with Robert Ferrel of the Cougars. JT Greep recovered the fumble for the Utes, who took over at the Washington State 25-yard line.

Eight plays later, and after a big targeting penalty by the Cougars, Glover took the ball one-yard up the field and into the end zone for a touchdown.

Glover’s run gave Utah a 14-7 lead.

The score capped an eight-play, 25-yard drive that took 2:27.

At halftime, the Utes owned a 14-7 advantage. Glover had 10 carries for 39 yards and a touchdown at the break.

The freshman from Lakeland, Florida entered the contest with 37 rushes for 153 yards and two touchdowns in four games this season.

No. 14 Utah vs. Washington State

Utah opened its season with a disappointing three-point loss on the road to the Florida Gators. After that, the Utes went on a four-game winning streak that included a pair of Pac-12 Conference victories. Following a loss on the road to the UCLA Bruins, the Utes bounced back with a 43-42 win over the Trojans in Week 7. A bye week last week will have the Utes well rested for another conference foe in Washington State.

The Cougars opened their 2022 slated on a hot streak, winning their first three contests, including a road win over the Wisconsin Badgers. However, after a home loss to the Oregon Ducks, the Cougars have lost three of their last four games and the last two in a row.

The Utes and Cougars have previously played each other 19 times. Utah owns a 10-9 lead in the series all-time. The Utes won the last meeting between the two schools, 24-13, in 2021.

Utah’s game against Washington State is broadcast on FS1 and 700 AM.
