LOGAN, Utah – Chuckie Keeton threw two touchdown passes, Kerwynn Williams scored on 1-yard run on the first possession of overtime and Utah State beat Utah 27-20 on Friday night to snap a 12-game losing streak against the Utes.
Utah State (2-0) held on after Utah (1-1) had a touchdown catch by Jake Murphy in overtime nullified when Murphy was called for interference.
Utah lost more than the game to an instate rival. It lost quarterback Jordan Wynn, who stood on the sideline with his left, non-throwing arm, in a sling after taking a hard hit in the second quarter.
Wynn sustained a season-ending injury to the same left shoulder last October.
Jon Hays replaced him and rallied Utah. His touchdown pass to Kenneth Scott tied it at 20 with 3:19 left in regulation. Utah got another TD pass from freshman Travis Wilson.
Utah’s Coleman Petersen missed a 52-yard field goal on the final play in regulation.
