Wilson won the Pac-12 all-around title Saturday with a 39.45 to become Utah’s second all-around winner in three years. Teammate Corrie Lothrop won the title in 2012. Wilson scored 9.925 on the vault, 9.875 on the bars, 9.75 on the beam and 9.9 on the floor to win the title. The Utes didn’t know if her score would survive the evening session since scores tend to rise, but the favorites all had ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Offensive and defensive starters were called out for head-to-head play right out of the gates in an up-tempo practice that saw coaches on both sides of the ball imploring the Utes to play with urgency. As on Tuesday, it was tough sledding for the offense when matched against the defense, but they showed improvement.

Wilson is ranked 12th nationally in the all-around with a 39.445 average, but is the highest-ranked gymnast in the Pac-12, making her one of the favorites for the all-around title at the Pac-12 Championships.

Utah quarterback Adam Schulz absorbed some tough hits against Colorado and Manning warmed up on the sideline, preparing to play. Schulz managed to finish the game, enabling Manning to save a year’s eligibility. That’s how close Manning came to playing. Four months later, he might be further away. Manning’s status illustrates how much the Utes’ quarterbacking picture has evolved since November.
