Wide receiver Rashard Higgins was able to maintain his season-long production though as he caught seven passes for 109 yards.
Utah’s win gives the Pac-12 a good start in bowl games as they are now 1-0. Meanwhile, the Mountain West conference fell to 0-2 with both Colorado State and Nevada losing their bowl games. It will be up to Air Force to bring the Mountain West its first bowl win.
