Steve Luhm @sluhm Britain Covey’s half-ending punt return for a touchdown reminded me of Utah State’s 52-26 win over Boise State in 2015, when Marwin Evans returned an interception 90 yards for a touchdown. At the time, Covey was a freshman at Utah. 😂 – 10:00 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman Tavion Thomas, 5 run, No. 17 for the year. Utah is 4-for-4 in the red zone, both in terms of real math AND Kyle math. Utes 35, Oregon 7. – 10:00 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman Utah could use another long drive here to eat up some clock. Utes’ three scoring drives tonight are 13, 9, and 6 plays. – 9:47 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell They’re showing the Utah-Oregon game on the video board ahead of Sixers-Blazers. A smattering of applause as the Ducks score a TD to cut the deficit to 28-7. (Can they put ASU-OSU on the same screen once things tip off here? 😎) – 9:44 PM
Bryan Kalbrosky @BryanKalbrosky Utah receiver Britain Covey told me he felt “like a little kid in a big world” when I interviewed him during his freshman year in 2015. My brain just had so much trouble processing that he is playing college football in 2021. That conversation feels like MANY lifetimes ago. 🤯 – 9:27 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress Utah punt return for TD before the half. 28-0. I can’t see the Ducks scoring 29 in the second half let alone also matching whatever Utah scores. That might be ballgame. – 9:16 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman To be clear: Kyle Whittingham called timeout to make Oregon punt, Oregon punted to Covey, and Covey just ripped Oregon’s throat out. Halftime: Utah 28, Oregon 0. – 9:14 PM
Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi USC’s last 5 home games: Stanford 42, USC 28 – Clay Helton fired. Oregon State, 45, USC 27 – OSU’s first win at the Coliseum since 1960. Utah 42, USC 26 – Utah’s first win against USC in L.A. since 1916. USC 41, Arizona 34 UCLA 62, USC 33 – UCLA’s most points against USC. – 7:37 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman Utah offensive line as warmups wind down. LT: Bam Olaseni LG: Keaton Bills C: Nick Ford RG: Sataoa Laumea RT: Braeden Daniels As expected with Paul Maile out. Ford back to C, Bills back to LG. Bills dressed last week after missing the previous two. – 7:18 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman Halftime in Daytona: Boston College 32, Utah 30. Mostly a rock fight for about 16 minutes, then BC started getting comfortable. Eagels are 48% shooting and 57% from deep/ – 5:38 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU Have a Clippers progress report coming out momentarily. One of the more eye-popping things in there have to do with Isaiah Hartenstein’s rim protection. As in… it’s on Rudy Gobert levels to start the season. – 5:36 PM
On Monday morning, the Yankees felt cautiously optimistic about their chances to sign Aaron Judge, though they had no idea when he would convey his decision. By the afternoon, a surprising twist had caught them off guard.
Portugal manager Fernando Santos has strongly criticised Cristiano Ronaldo over his angry reaction after being substituted against South Korea and there is now major doubt over whether he will start against Switzerland.
