Utah 49California 27

SALT LAKE CITY — Reggie Dunn set a school record with two 100-yard kickoff returns, and Utah's defense forced three turnovers in a victory over California. The win snapped a four-game losing streak for Utah (3-5, 1-4 Pac-12) and kept alive hopes of being bowl-eligible for the 10th consecutive season. Reggie Topps' 17-yard fumble return for a touchdown gave Utah a 14-3 lead with 2:13 left in the first quarter. The Utes led 28-6 at halftime after a 5-yard TD run by freshman quarterback Travis Wilson. In his third start, Wilson completed 16 of 24 passes for 156 yards. Utah intercepted Zach Maynard once and sacked him four times. Standout receiver Keenan Allen became Cal's all-time receptions leader with 205 catches but didn't get on track until the game was well in hand.
