SALT LAKE CITY — Keith Price threw three touchdown passes, Chris Polk rushed for 189 yards to surpass 3,000 in his career and Washington cruised to a 31-14 victory over Utah on Saturday.

The Huskies (4-1, 2-0) forced five turnovers by Utah (2-2, 0-2), including a fumble on the opening kickoff that Jamaal Kearse returned 18 yards for a touchdown.

Utah quarterback Jordan Wynn did not play in the second half due to an injury to his left (non-throwing) shoulder. He finished 12 of 17 for 149 yards with a touchdown and interception.

Jon Hays, who had previously thrown one major-college pass, was intercepted on his second attempt Saturday. He fumbled in the fourth quarter before tossing a last-minute 4-yard TD pass to Dallin Rogers.

Price was 22 of 30 for 226 yards. He has 17 touchdown passes this season.
