Cain, Wide lead Utah over Louisville 30-14
SALT LAKE CITY (AP)—Terrance Cain threw for two touchdowns and Eddie Wide ran for 129 yards to help Utah cruise to a 30-14 win over Louisville on Saturday night.
Cain completed his first eight passes and the Utes scored two touchdowns 18 seconds apart to take control early and help get going again after a 31-24 loss at Oregon last week that ended the nation’s longest active winning streak.
Wide replaced Matt Asiata, who left after a knee injury on the game’s first touchdown, and made many of his 19 carries on direct snaps with Cain often lined up in the slot position.
After Louisville closed to 23-14 in the fourth quarter, Cain capped an 80-yard drive with a wide receiver screen pass to Jereme Brooks, who outran the Cardinals for a 34-yard touchdown.
