In losing the game, the Utes also lost starting QB Tyler Huntley to a season-ending injury.According to a report by ESPN, Huntley sustained a broken collarbone in the third quarter against Arizona State. The injury will effectively end his season. At the time, Huntley  had to be carted off the field.Huntley was replaced by QB Jason Shelley, but the team couldn’t muster much offense with him.Utah were held to just three points the rest of the game after Huntley went down. The Sun Devils, meanwhile, ran away with the game, scoring 17 points in the fourth quarter for a 38-20 win.Tyler Huntley carted off the field, looking very upset. Hate to see injuries in this rough game.— Jordan Simone (@JordanSimone38) November 3, 2018The loss sent the Utes to 6-3 on the season but 4-3 in conference games. They hold wins over USC and Arizona, the two closest teams in the PAC-12 South standings.Utah’s remaining games are against Oregon, Colorado, and BYU.If the Utes can win just two of those games, it might be enough to send them to the PAC-12 championship game.last_img
