Good news from Utah officials, injury updates on defensive lineman Joe Kruger, running back John White and offensive lineman Sam Brenner is all three should be recovered in time to participate in Utah's bowl game. White and Kruger suffered ankle injuries in the Utes' loss to Colorado while Brenner suffered a neck injury. The game was delayed 14 minutes while Brenner was examined on the field at Rice-Eccles Stadium but exams at the University of Utah hospital revealed no serious damage. White, who rushed 10 times for 28 yards before leaving the game in the third quarter, moved ahead of Dameon Hunter (1,396 yards in 2001) into second place for the most rushing yards in a season at Utah with 1,405 yards. - Lya Wodraska
