Logan • Utah's fortune in its 27-20 loss to Utah State Friday night swung on two key plays in overtime.
One was a defensive breakdown that allowed Chuckie Keeton to stride 23 yards to the 1-yard line. The other? An offensive pass interference call that took away the Utes' equalizer and left them shaking their heads it wasn't reciprocated as the game ended.
Jake Murphy, who scored two touchdowns a week earlier against Northern Colorado, appeared to have scored a touchdown on third-and-goal from the 6 when backup quarterback Jon Hays found him wide open in the corner of the end zone. Three plays later, Hays' final pass fell to the ground when Utah State's Will Davis aggressively covered DeVonte Christopher in the end zone.
