08/22/16 - (WR) - Cory Butler-Byrd, Sr, 5-09, 180
Utah wide receiver Corey Butler-Byrd was partially reinstated from his suspension Tuesday, a day after pleading guilty as part of a plea deal in Salt Lake City stemming from a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief last month. Butler-Byrd will be able to participate in practices and team activities, but will not be able to compete in games. Butler-Byrd was suspended indefinitely on the first day of fall camp for what coach Kyle Whittingham called "personal issues" in a school release. Authorities say he damaged a university police patrol car and building in July. Butler-Byrd signed with the Utes as a cornerback coming out of junior college in 2015. He started last season on defense before making the switch to wide receiver, with his lone reception a 54-yard touchdown catch. Butler-Boyd also had a kick return for a touchdown.

Utah wide receiver Corey Butler-Byrd was suspended indefinitely on the first day of fall camp Thursday for what coach Kyle Whittingham called "personal issues" in a school release. The specific reason behind the suspension was not disclosed, but Butler-Byrd will remain on scholarship while unable to take part in football-related activities.

12/19/15 - (SS) - Tevin Carter, rSr, 6-1, 218
Utah took advantage of a disastrous start by BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl, scoring five first-quarter touchdowns on turnovers - including two interceptions by Tevin Carter - before holding on to beat the Cougars 35-28 on Saturday. Carter returned one of the picks for a touchdown and another to the 1 as No. 20 Utah romped to a 35-0 first- quarter lead in the first meeting of the two heated rivals outside of the state of Utah. BYU turned the ball over the first five times it had the ball, with freshman quarterback Tanner Mangum throwing three interceptions and fumbling once. That was all the scoring Utah did, and it nearly cost the Utes the game. Mangum would bring BYU back, throwing two touchdown passes and rushing for another score with 3:23 left to get the Cougars within one score, but BYU never got the ball back. - AP Sports

12/10/15 - (P) - Tom Hackett, Sr, 5-10, 198
2015 RAY GUY AWARD WINNER: Tom Hackett, Utah...Hackett, a 2014 consensus All-American and three-time first-team All-Pac-12 punter from Australia, is the only Ray Guy Award winner in Pac-12 history. He had never played a down of American football before walking on to the Utah team in 2013 and has started every game the past three seasons after sharing the starting job as a freshman. Utah leads the nation in net punting (43.67) behind Hackett, whose 47.8 punt average (55 punts, 2,628 yards) leads the Pac-12 and ranks third in the nation. His 20 punts of 50+ yards also leads the Pac-12. Hackett has placed 24 punts inside the 20-yard line (43.6-percent of his punts) with 11 inside the 10-yard line and two inside the 5-yard line. Hackett has two of the six longest punts in the country this season (76 yards vs. Oregon and 74 yards vs. Michigan). - Utah Football


11/25/15 - (P) - Tom Hackett, Sr, 5-10, 198
2015 RAY GUY AWARD FINALIST: Tom Hackett, Utah...Hackett, Utahís second Ray Guy Award finalist along with Louie Sakoda in 2008, became the first Ray Guy Award winner in Pac-12 history last season. Utah leads the nation in net punting (43.44) behind Hackett, whose 47.4 punt average (48 punts, 2,274 yards) leads the Pac-12 and is fourth in the nation. His 17 punts of 50+ yards also leads the Pac-12. He has placed 21 punts inside the 20-yard line (42.8-percent of his punts), with 11 inside the 10-yard line and two inside the 5-yard line. Hackett has two of the six longest punts in the country this season (76 yards vs. Oregon and 74 yards vs. Michigan). Hackett, a 2014 consensus All-American and two-time first-team All-Pac-12 punter from Australia, had never played a down of American football before walking on to the Utah team in 2013. He has started every game the past three seasons after sharing the starting job as a freshman. - Utah Football


11/20/15 - (RB) - Devontae Booker, rSr, 5-11, 219
Utah running back Devontae Booker will miss the final two games of the regular season and perhaps the Utes' postseason after having knee surgery Thursday. Booker's father, Ronnie Booker, confirmed his son suffered a torn meniscus and bone bruise in his left knee last week against Arizona. The hope is that Booker will at least be able to participate in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 30. "It's unfortunate," Ronnie Booker said. No. 18 Utah hosts UCLA on Saturday in a must-win for the team to remain in contention for a Pac-12 championship. The Utes need to win their final two games and have USC lose to either UCLA or Oregon to win the South division and earn a berth in the Dec. 5 title game. Ronnie Booker said they hope Utah can win the conference and have a January bowl game that would give Devontae more time to heal and possibly participate. "He was disappointed," Ronnie Booker said. "He said, 'Well, dad, it happens.'" "He said, 'Well, dad, all I'm thinking about now is getting the surgery done so I can start getting back to rehab and getting back right. That's what's on my mind now.'" - AP Sports


11/10/15 - (SS) - Chase Hansen, rSo, 6-2, 212
Utes lose S Hansen to leg injury...Utah freshman safety Chase Hansen will be sidelined for the remainder of the season after injuring his leg on the final play of Saturday's win against Washington, coach Kyle Whittingham confirmed Monday. Hansen, who was making his first start, played a significant role in the Utes' 34-23 win over the Huskies. He compiled a game-high 11 tackles, forced a fumble and broke up a pass. "It's a shame. He played lights out in this game and was really just phenomenal with his play," Whittingham said. "So, it's a setback for us. But it's next man up." Hansen was four-star quarterback recruit. He just started practicing at safety about a month ago. Whittingham did not reveal details of the injury, but it is possible Hansen will need surgery. Whittingham did say Hansen should be 100 percent by next year. - The Sports Xchange


11/09/15 - (ILB) - Gionni Paul, rSr, 5-10, 231
NOV 9 WALTER CAMP NATIONAL FBS DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: GIONNI PAUL, UTAH, Senior, Linebacker, Winter Haven, FL/Kathleen...Gionni Paul recorded nine tackles, two quarterback sacks, one interception and recovered a fumble and returned it 54 yards for a touchdown as 13th-ranked Utah defeated Washington, 34-23 Paulís all-around play on defense helped the Utes improve to 8-1, 5-1 in the Pac-12. Notes: Gionni Paul is the third Utah player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004, joining former Ute DB Eric Weddle (Sept. 24, 2006) and DE Derrick Shelby (Oct. 16, 2011). - The Walter Camp Football Foundation


11/08/15 - (ILB) - Gionni Paul, rSr, 5-10, 231
Utah finally forced some more turnovers to remain in control of the Pac-12 South Division race with three weeks left in the regular season. Don't count out the No. 13 Utes just yet from getting back into the College Football Playoff conversation. Gionni Paul returned a fumble 54 yards for a touchdown, set up another score with an interception and No. 13 Utah held off Washington 34-23 on Saturday night. Utah (8-1, 5-1, No. 12 CFP) leaned on big plays from its defense to overcome an inconsistent night offensively against the Huskies (4-5, 2-4). After going two weeks without forcing a turnover, the Utes forced three in the first half and made that stand up against Washington's second-half rally. "Going in we knew we were going to be facing a good defense. We wanted to prove which defense was better," Paul said. Part of Utah's success this season has been the ability to create turnovers. But that aspect disappeared in its lone loss at USC and again last week in a tougher-than-expected victory over Oregon State. That prowess for causing chaos was back against Washington, including the Utes' third defensive touchdown of the season. - AP Sports


11/03/15 - (QB) - Travis Wilson, Sr, 6-7, 232
The magic number is down to four for No. 13 Utah. Four more wins and the Utes will play in their first Pac-12 title game since joining the conference in 2011. The Utah defense ruled the day again, helping the Utes beat Oregon State 27-12 on Saturday night. Utah (7-1, 4-1) holds a game lead in the Pac-12 South over UCLA (6-2, 3-2) with four games remaining, including the Bruins on Nov. 21.

"Were you impressed by that," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham asked the media at the start of his press conference. "... Bottom line is that we're 7-1 and we're headed to Seattle with sole possession of first place in the Pac-12 South. "I'm very interested in the College Playoff Rankings. That's what it's all about. The other rankings are just window dressing for the fans and the media. We very, very interested to see where we're at." Utah led 14-0 after its first two possessions and cruised from there. Devontae Booker rushed for 121 yards and a touchdown, and Travis Wilson completed 14 of 17 passes for 198 yards and a touchdown and ran for 56 yards and a score. Wilson broke the Utah record for starts by a quarterback with 34, and tied Alex Smith for second place in school history with 21 wins as a starter. - AP Sports

10/27/15 - (RB) - Devontae Booker, rSr, 5-11, 219
OCT 26 PAC-12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Utah Running back Devontae Booker, a senior running back from Sacramento, Calif., led Utah with 267 all-purpose yards in the 30-24 win over California. His 267 yards from scrimmage are the most by a player in the NCAA against a ranked team this year. Booker rushed for a season-high 222 yards with two touchdowns on 34 carries, averaging 6.5 yards per carry and also had four receptions for 45 yards. Bookerís 34 carries are the most in a game in the Conference this season. He scored Utahís first touchdown on a 40-yard run with 1:18 left in the first quarter, and his four-yard touchdown in the second quarter gave the Utes a 24-10 lead. Also nominated for Offensive Player of the Week: Mike Bercovici, QB, ASU; Royce Freeman, RB, ORE; Myles Gaskin, TB, WASH; Luke Falk, QB, WSU. - Pac-12 Football


10/27/15 - (P) - Tom Hackett, Sr, 5-10, 198
OCT 26 PAC-12 SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Utah punter Tom Hackett, a senior punter from Melbourne, Australia, earned his second league weekly accolade of the season after he averaged 50.8 yards on four punts for 203 yards in the 30-24 win over California. He placed two punts inside the 10-yard line. Cal had one punt return for no yards, and its average starting field position following a punt was the 15-yard line. Hackettís final punt of the game for 51 yards was downed at the five-yard line with 4:52 remaining, forcing Cal to start its final drive deep in its own territory. Also nominated for Special Teams Player of the Week: Zane Gonzales, PK, ASU; Nick Porebski, OSU; Korey Durkee, P, WASH. - Pac-12 Football


10/26/15 - (WR) - Tim Patrick, rSr, 6-4, 210
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham says senior receiver Tim Patrick is out for the rest of the season and is seeking another year of eligibility. Patrick made one appearance this season trying to return from a leg injury that ended his 2014 season. The coaching staff thought Patrick would return last week for the 13th-ranked Utes after a couple good days of practice, but the 6-foot-5, 205-pound Patrick suffered a setback. The NCAA must grant medical redshirts for an extra year of eligibility. Whittingham said, "Now we're to the point we think he's going to be best served to try to get this waiver." Patrick walked onto the team in 2014 and quickly earned a scholarship. He started four games that season, played in nine and caught 16 passes for 177 yards. - AP Sports


10/20/15 - (TE) - Siale Fakailoatonga, Sr, 6-4, 255
Utah starting tight end Siale Fakailoatonga is out for the season after being injured in the 34-18 win against Arizona State on Saturday. Coach Kyle Whittingham made the announcement Monday but did not elaborate on the injury. The third-ranked Utes (6-0), the last undefeated team in the Pac-12, play at USC on Saturday. Fakailoatonga started the last five games after Evan Moeai was lost for season in the opener. He had 12 receptions for 120 yards, ranking fourth on the team in both categories. Sophomore Harrison Handley moves to the top of the depth chart and freshman Caleb Repp is listed as the backup. Handley has two touchdowns on nine receptions this season. - AP Sports
