Utes hold off Dawgs

It was a rainy and windy night as the 12th ranked Utah Utes came into Husky Stadium. The Utes went up by a couple of scores early and were able t hold off a surge by Washington to capture a 34-23 win. The slushy conditions lead to seven total turnovers in the game and the Utes were able to take one fumble back for a touchdown. Washington hits the road for two weeks before coming home for the Apple Cup against WSU.
