SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah dominated yet another opponent on both sides of the ball. The No. 8 Utes smothered UCLA on offense and shredded the Bruins on defense on their way to a 49-3 victory on Saturday night. It was the largest margin of victory for Utah in a Pac-12 game. Utah (9-1, 6-1 Pac-12, No. 7 CFP) also beat the Bruins for a fourth straight season. On offense, the Utes totaled 536 yards and rushed for 201 yards. Their domination was equally pronounced on defense. UCLA (4-6, 4-3 Pac-12) saw a three-game winning streak end after it committed five turnovers and averaged just 3.7 yards per play. The Bruins finished with 50 rushing yards after losing 81 total yards on sacks and tackles for loss. “We certainly won the rushing battle and controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage,” Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. The Utes wanted to prove they were the more physical team and proved it over 60 minutes. Utah's ability to be disruptive on every play caused the … [Read more...] about No. 8 Utah routs UCLA 49-3 to improve to 9-1.

Cal lost quarterback Chase Garbers to another injury in his first game back. It didn’t get any better for the Bears after that, and now coach Justin Wilcox’s team faces an uphill climb in its quest for a third consecutive bowl berth. A 41-17 loss to USC in the Joe Roth Game on Saturday night left the Bears (5-5, 2-5 Pac-12) needing to win one of their final two games to become bowl eligible. Cal plays at Stanford in the Big Game next week, then closes out against UCLA on Nov. 30. Both are winnable games, but the way things went against the Trojans, the Bears can’t take anything for granted. Cal has lost five of six, negating a 4-0 start that thrust the Bears into the Top 25 for the first time since 2009. Whether the Bears will have their starting quarterback for the stretch run is uncertain. Garbers returned after missing five weeks but didn’t last long. He engineered a scoring drive on Cal’s first series but was knocked out of the game after a 4-yard … [Read more...] about Cal demolished by USC; QB Garbers injured again
