Instant recap: ASU football stifled by Utah defense in 21-3 loss

ASU's offense was unable to capitalize on four Utah turnovers

The No. 17 ASU football team suffered its second Pac-12 loss of the season Saturday following a 21-3 loss to No. 13 Utah in rainy Salt Lake City.

Despite four takeaways from the defense, ASU committed a season-high 12 penalties and struggled to muster consistent offensive production Saturday. 

Utah's 10th-ranked defense stifled ASU's offense to the tune of 136 total yards, a season-low.

Freshman quarterback Jayden Daniels faced pressure throughout the game and finished 4-of-18 passing for 25 yards and an interception.

Junior running back Eno Benjamin complied 104 rushing yards on 15 carries. 

ASU committed two turnovers of its own, including a fumbled punt return with 5:33 left in the game. Utah then put the game out of reach with a 32-yard score from running back Zack Moss, who rushed for 99 yards.

Utes quarterback Tyler Huntley threw for 171 yards and an interception, his first of the season.

ASU will be on the road again next week to take on UCLA (2-5, 2-2 Pac-12) in Pasadena, CA on Saturday Oct. 26 at 4:30 p.m. MST.
