Utah Vs. Air Force: Utes Score First On Eddie Wide Touchdown Run

Utah has gotten off to a good start in its toughest road test of the season so far.

Running back Eddie Wide capped a 13-play, 68-yard drive with a one-yard plunge, and the Utes are up 7-0 on Air Force in Colorado Springs.

Utah was lucky to get a chance to score first. A rare pass from Air Force went for 34 yards, but Mikel Hunter fumbled in Utah territory, and the Utes took over and went on a grinding drive that included 63 rushing yards, three third down conversions, and five first downs.

If Air Force is going to keep pace with the undefeated Utes, it will likely need to match their running game. For the team that ranks first in the country with 326.5 rushing yards per game, that might not be so hard.
