Jon Hays threw two touchdown passes and managed the game, John White rushed for two scores and 109 yards and the Utah defense forced Arizona QB Nick Foles into one of the worst games of his mostly outstanding career.
The end result was a 34-21 victory, a second consecutive Pac-12 win for the Utes, who at 5-4 are one win away from bowl-eligibility. And their schedule suggests they'll get their with room to spare. They play host to UCLA next weekend.
Foles passed for 326 yards, but threw two interceptions. Hays had none.
Arizona falls to 2-7, which means it won't be bowl-eligible this year.
The Wildcats visit 1-9 Colorado on Saturday.
