Justin Herbert hit Darren Carrington for a 17-yard touchdown pass with two seconds remaining to give Oregon a 30-28 upset victory over No. 11 Utah on Saturday, putting the Utes' hopes of a Pac-12 championship in jeopardy. Herbert led the Ducks, who have struggled all season and suffered several lopsided losses, on a 10-play, 75-yard drive in just over two minutes, capping it with the TD pass to Carrington. Carrington was initially called out of bounds but that call was reversed after a replay showed he got a foot down inbounds. Herbert finished the game with 324 yards passing and three TDs. He also scored on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter. The Utes had taken a 28-24 lead with 2:18 remaining off a Troy Williams 30-yard touchdown pass but the Ducks then began their comeback drive. Royce Freeman led the Ducks ground game with 129 yards. He also scored on a one-yard pass from Herbert early in the fourth. - AP Sports


11/15/16 - (DE) - Hunter Dimick, rSr, 6-3, 268
Hunter Dimick was so eager to begin his collegiate career at No. 11 Utah that he wanted to skip a planned senior trip to Spain. The Syracuse, Utah, native was the first football player from his high school to earn a Division I scholarship as a three-star recruit and he dreamed of playing for the Utes. He didn't want to miss a portion of summer workouts for a vacation. "That was a very good but very long two weeks away," Dimick said. "It was great. Nothing beats time with your family, but it was good to get back." Five years later, the senior is tied with John Frank as the school's career leader in sacks (27) after setting a school single-game record with five against Arizona State last week. His 12 sacks so far this season tie him with Louisiana Tech's Jaylon Ferguson for the most in the nation and his 17.5 tackles for loss are No. 3.

Dimick has had a roller-coaster career with soaring highs and some upsetting lows. He stood out as a redshirt sophomore in 2014 with 10 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss then played just seven games in 2015 due to a shoulder injury. Dimick has started every game as a senior and his five sacks last week put him into a tie for third-most in a single game in NCAA history. Dimick credits his "small-town mentality" for the way he works. He pushed himself to exhaustion during the offseason and still has it in the back of his mind that he "didn't expect to be here." - AP Sports

11/14/16 - (DE) - Hunter Dimick, rSr, 6-3, 268
NOV 14 PAC-12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Hunter Dimick, Sr., DE, Utah,...Named the Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week after his five sacks in Utahís 49-26 win over ASU...Tied for the most sacks in a game in Pac-12 history, tied for third in NCAA history and is the most in the FBS this season (he leads the FBS in total sacks with 12.0)...His 6.5 tackles for loss is tied for second in Pac-12 history and is the most in the FBS this season. He now has 27 career sacks, tying a school record. ALSO NOMINATED, Defensive: Kenneth Olugbode, COLO; Manase Hungalu, OSU; Justin Reid, STAN; Takkarist McKinley, UCLA; Adoree' Jackson, USC; Nate DeRider, WSU. - Pac-12 Football


11/14/16 - (DE) - Hunter Dimick, rSr, 6-3, 268
Utah defensive end Hunter Dimick took over the national lead with 12 sacks thanks to a school-record five sacks in a 49-26 win over Arizona State on Thursday. The senior also tied the school record for career sacks (27) with his effort, and he had a career-high nine tackles in the win. - AP Sports


11/14/16 - (DE) - Hunter Dimick, rSr, 6-3, 268
NOV 14 WALTER CAMP NATIONAL FBS DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: HUNTER DIMICK, UTAH, Senior, Defensive End, Syracuse, Utah/Syracuse HS...Hunter Dimick posted nine tackles (8 solo), including 6.5 for losses, as 13th-ranked Utah defeated Arizona State, 49-26. Dimick had five quarterback sacks as the Utes improved to 8-2, 5-2 in the Pac-12. Notes: Hunter Dimick is the fifth Utah player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004, and the second this season (running back Joe Williams, Oct. 23). - The Walter Camp Football Foundation


11/11/16 - (DE) - Hunter Dimick, rSr, 6-3, 268
No. 15 Utah rolls past Arizona State after trailing early...Troy Willams set career highs with 296 yards passing and four touchdowns and No. 15 Utah spotted Arizona State a 13-point lead before rolling to a 49-26 victory on Thursday at Sun Devil Stadium. Williams threw three touchdown passes to wide receiver Raelon Singleton, who set career highs with 116 receiving yards and touchdowns. Joe Williams rushed for 181 yards and two touchdowns on 82- and 40-yard runs in the second half. He has rushed for 864 yards and eight touchdowns in four games since ending a self-imposed retirement.

Utah safety Chase Hansen had a 34-yard interception return for a touchdown with 5:46 remaining for a 42-26 lead. The Utes (8-2, 5-2 Big 12) stayed alive in the Pac-12 South race. They are one-half game behind No. 11 Colorado (7-2, 5-1) but finish the regular season on Nov. 29 in Boulder. The Utes have beaten No. 20 USC (6-3, 5-2). Manny Wilkins passed for 309 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for Arizona State (5-5, 2-5), which has lost four in a row and five of six. Utah had 11 sacks, five by defensive end Hunter Dimick and three by defensive end Pita Taumoepenu, and forced Arizona State into 22 plays for negative yardage. - The Sports Xchange

OCT 24 WALTER CAMP NATIONAL FBS OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: JOE WILLIAMS, UTAH: Senior, Running Back, Allentown, PA/Emmaus...Joe Williams rushed for a school-record 332 yards (on 29 carries) and scored four touchdowns as 19th-ranked Utah defeated UCLA, 52-45. Williams scored on runs of 64, 55, 43 and three yards as the Utes improved to 7-1, 4-1 in the Pac-12. Notes: Joe Williams is the fourth Utah player to earn Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors since 2004, joining Eric Weddle (DB, Sept. 24, 2006), Derrick Shelby (DE, Oct. 16, 2011) and Gionni Paul (LB, Nov. 8, 2015). - The Walter Camp Football Foundation


10/23/16 - (RB) - Joe Williams, Sr, 5-11, 210
Five years after Utah running back Joe Williams and UCLA quarterback Mike Fafaul left Fork Union Military Academy together, they both posted record-breaking performances on the same wild afternoon. Only Williams left the Rose Bowl happy with his effort ó and his decision to get back in the game with the Utes. Williams rushed for a school-record 332 yards and four touchdowns in his second game back from retirement, and No. 19 Utah held off pass-happy UCLA 52-45 Saturday. Williams broke off TD runs of 3, 43, 64 and 55 yards during the greatest rushing day in Utah (7-1, 4-1 Pac-12) history, surpassing Mike Anderson's 1999 record, and the most prolific rushing performance ever by a UCLA opponent.

"I'm pretty sure (the Bruins) are tired of seeing the back of my jersey running down the field," Williams said, giving the credit to his offensive line. "We've got five grown men out there that could be in the NFL tomorrow. I'm just glad to be running behind them." Cory Butler-Byrd returned the opening kickoff for a 99-yard touchdown on a day of stunning superlatives for the Utes in their second straight win at the Rose Bowl. Williams quit football last month before returning last week when injuries decimated Utah's depth, and he has 511 yards on the ground in two games since. - AP Sports

10/16/16 - (RB) - Joe Williams, Sr, 5-11, 210
Joe Williams got the call Monday. Would he consider coming back to the Utes? "It was a quick yes," the running back said. With just a week of practice, Williams came out of retirement and ran for 179 yards and a touchdown for No. 21 Utah on Saturday in a rain-soaked 19-14 victory over Oregon State. The senior who left the team following the second game of the season finished with 34 carries and the Utes (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12) became bowl eligible with the victory. "It's like riding a bike," he smiled. Trailing 12-7, Oregon State (2-4, 1-2) got as close as the Utah 9 with 8:25 left in the game, but couldn't score and Garrett Owens' 27-yard field goal attempt went wide left. After quarterback Troy Williams ran for an 8-yard touchdown to extend Utah's lead, the Beavers scored on Marcus McMaryion's 14-yard pass to Hunter Jarmon for the final margin. But ultimately Oregon State couldn't overcome its first-half struggles. The game was costly for Oregon State. Starting quarterback Darell Garretson (ankle) and backup Conor Blount (knee) were both on crutches following the game. Running back Ryan Nall (foot) left the game after one carry. - AP Sports


10/11/16 - (RB) - Armand Shyne, Jr, 5-10, 214
Disaster has struck for No. 21 Utah. That's how coach Kyle Whittingham described the running back situation after the position was hit by injury yet again. Starting running back Armand Shyne is done for the season after suffering an injury to his right leg during the 36-23 win over Arizona on Saturday. Shyne was promoted to starter last week and went down immediately after becoming the first Utes back to rush for 100 yards in a game this season. He finished with 101 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Shyne will miss the spring session, also. The sophomore was the fourth Utah running back to go down this season, and he wasn't the only one Saturday. Junior Jordan Howard became No. 5 after making his debut at running back following Shyne's injury. Whittingham didn't specify the injury, but Howard cannot play this week against Oregon State. Game 1 starter Joe Williams retired after two games due to injuries. - AP Sports


10/09/16 - (QB) - Troy Williams, rSr, 6-1, 200
Utah's eighth false start penalty of the first half brought out boos from its homecoming crowd. Luckily for the Utes, a second-half rally was enough to avoid spoiling the occasion. Quarterback Troy Williams ran for two touchdowns and threw another, helping No. 24 Utah come back to beat Arizona 36-23 on Saturday night. Utah (5-1, 2-1) trailed 14-12 at halftime after committing 11 first-half penalties, including all those false starts. Arizona (2-4, 0-3) scored on the first snap of the game when Brandon Dawkins connected with Shun Brown for a 75-yard TD pass, taking advantage of blown coverage that left Brown completely uncovered. "We're a pretty decent football team if we would stop some of the self-inflicted stuff," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. "We did some things to create tough situations for us that we've got to get fixed. We had far too many penalties tonight." The Utes scored 26 straight points after falling behind 14-3. Williams got both of his running TDs in the second half and had 245 yards passing for the game. - AP Sports


10/05/16 - (OT) - J.J. Dielman, rSr, 6-5, 309
Hours after coach Kyle Whittingham said No. 24 Utah didn't sustain any season-ending injuries during its loss California, the Utes found out three-year starting center J.J. Dielman will miss the rest of the season due to a lower leg injury. Whittingham said several players were having MRIs on Monday to determine the severity of their injuries. Dielman clearly got bad news as the school said he was out in a release Monday afternoon. He joins former starting defensive end Kylie Fitts and tight end Siale Fakailoatonga on the sideline for the rest of the season with injuries. Utah is coming off its first loss, but it may have bigger problems in the quest for a Pac-12 title. The Utes have been ravaged by injuries at receiver, offensive line, running back, defensive line and in the secondary. "I'd be here for a half hour if we start talking about all the injuries," Whittingham said. - AP Sports


10/03/16 - (ILB) - Sunia Tauteoli, Sr, 6-0, 220
SEPT 12 PAC-12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Sunia Tauteoli, Jr., LB, Salt Lake City...Returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown on the gameís first play from scrimmage for a 7-0 Utah lead...Also intercepted a pass in the third quarter giving him two in the game and in his career...Along with six tackles (tied for second on the team), he assisted in the tackle that stopped BYUís two-point conversion attempt with 18 seconds remaining to secure a 20-19 win over BYU. ALSO NOMINATED, Defensive: De'Chavon 'Gump' Hayes, ASU; Jalen Jelks, ORE; Randall Goforth, UCLA; Cameron Smith, USC. - Pac-12 Football
