Final Score: Utah 34, Arizona 21

Tempe, AZ (Sports Network) - Jon Hays threw for 199 yards and two touchdowns and John White rushed for 109 yards and two more scores as Utah beat Arizona 34-21 at Arizona Stadium.

DeVonte Christopher added three catches for 79 yards and a touchdown for Utah (5-4,2-4 Pac-12), and the Utes defense forced three turnovers in the win.

Arizona (2-7, 1-6) was led by Nick Foles, who threw for 326 yards and two touchdowns but also threw two interceptions as the Wildcats were officially eliminated from bowl eligibility.

Utah got on the board midway through the first quarter with a 33-yard Coleman Petersen field goal, and the Utes made it 10-0 in the opening seconds of the second quarter after Hays found Christopher on a 65-yard touchdown pass.

Nearly four minutes later, White hit paydirt from 18 yards out to extend the Utah lead to 17-0. Arizona finally got on the board with 3:45 left in the second quarter, when Foles hit David Douglas for a 23-yard touchdown pass to cap the most productive Wildcats' drive of the half.

In the final 1:32 of the second quarter, Utah drove 41 yards in seven plays to set up a 35-yard field goal by Petersen as time expired to give the Utes a 20-7 lead heading into recess.

Hays wasted no time getting Utah back on the scoreboard early in the third quarter, completing a 44-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Dunn.

Foles connected on his second touchdown pass of the day at the 5:02 mark of the third quarter, a 42-yard strike to Douglas that pulled Arizona within 27-14. Douglas finished with 10 catches for 156 yards and two scores.

Arizona wasn't able to pull any closer, and White sealed it with a 11-yard touchdown run with 2:50 remaining in the game that put Utah up 34-14.

The Wildcats scored the final touchdown of the game, as Daniel Jenkins rushed for a 29-yard score with just 23 seconds left.
