Seattle • The Washington Huskies overcame a rash of penalties to lead the Utah Utes 14-8 at halftime here Saturday.

Washington quarterback Keith Price scored on a 4-yard run with 2:16 remaining in the half to put the Huskies ahead of the Utes, who have never beaten Washington in seven tries.

Washington's drive was set up by a Travis Wilson interception that was returned 13 yards to Washington's 33-yard line.

That drive was just one of several in which the Utes squandered good field position.

The Utes' average starting field position in the first half was their 35-yard line, while Washington's was the 24-yard line.

John White, who scored on a 46-yard run in the first quarter, found room to run and finished with 91 yards in the half, but he wasn't enough to carry Utah's offense.

Wilson was just 6-for-14 for 32 yards. White and senior Luke Matthews both had drops on catchable balls.

Price finished the half 13-for-19 for 152 yards and Washington running back Bishop Sankey rushed 16 times for 80 yards.

The Huskies were penalized six times for 62 yards.
