TULSA vs. UTAH
ESPN'S TAKE
Jim Donnan The first half was a situation of both teams feeling each other out and it was a well-played game from the standpoint of not many mistakes or turnovers. Utah took over the game in the second half by getting the ball to running back Brent Casteel in the third quarter and quarterback Brett Ratliff had a big half throwing the ball. Eric Weddle was outstanding throughout the game on both sides of the ball. And defensively Utah did a good job of containing Tulsa for the most part except for two drives. The Utes' kicker, Louie Sakoda, continues to be one of the best in the country and that made a lot of difference with his four field goals and his good punting.
