Final: Utah 42, Colorado 35
By Ted Miller
It took a while for Utah to be Dunn with Colorado.
(Yes, that just happened).
Reggie Dunn, the Utes kicker returner extraordinaire -- and the term sells Dunn short -- provided Utah the winning points in a 42-35 victory over Colorado with another 100-yard kick return in the fourth quarter, this time immediately answering the Buffaloes' Marques Mosley, who had done the same on the previous kickoff.
That increased Dunn's NCAA-record total to five career 100-yard kickoff returns, four of which came this season.
Four this season! Are you kicking me?
Dunn's heroics and Buffaloes turnovers made the difference, as the Utes looked pretty horrible against the Buffs, now 1-11 (1-8 Pac-12).
Colorado outgained the Utes 418 yards to 336 but lost the turnover battle 5-1.
Colorado quarterback Nick Hirschman passed for 306 yards but also threw four interceptions. John White rushed for 168 yards on 20 carries in his final game for the Utes.
Utah finishes the season at 5-7 overall and 3-6 in Pac-12 play.
