No. 12 Utah scores twice in final 2 minutes, beats Baylor 20-13 

The Utes were on upset watch for most of the day on Saturday. 

No. 12 Utah allowed a 4-yard touchdown rush by Baylor quarterback Sawyer Robertson with 3:23 left in the second quarter, and it trailed up until the final two minutes of the second half. 

Utah grinded out a 15-play, 88-yard drive to tie the game at 13 points with 1:59 left to play in the fourth quarter. The Utes gained possession when 10:01 remained on the clock, and returned the football back to the Bears with less than two minutes to play thanks to a 7-yard touchdown rush by redshirt freshman Nate Johnson. 

Utah junior safety Cole Bishop came up with a critical interception at the Baylor 29-yard line with 1:35 left to play in the fourth quarter and effectively flipped the field for the Utes.

Jaylon Glover and Ja’Quinden Jackson ran the football just as Utah needed, as the pair rushed for 32 yards enough to reach the end zone for the former, finding the end zone to thrust the Utes ahead for the first time in the game. 

Robertson connected on a 47-yard pass to put Baylor at Utah’s 22-yard line with less than 20 left in the game’s final drive. It was too little too late for the Bears who ran out of time and ran out of options to pull off an upset at home.
