Jordan Wynn is all right, so too is Utah's new offense, beating Northern Colorado 41-0.

But the real star in Utah's blowout win of Northern Colorado? A group of guys said to be some of the best in the Pac-12.

Utah's defense notched its first shutout since the Utes beat Wyoming 50-0 in 2007.

Granted Northern Colorado didn't exactly represent the caliber of team that the Utes will face in the Pac-12, but if Thursday's game was at least a tease of what the future holds Utah fans have to be happy.

Wynn, playing in his first game since Oct. 1, 2011, threw for more than 200 yards and John White ran for his ninth 100-yard game to lead the Utes.

Tight end Jake Murphy added two touchdowns and backup quarterback Travis Wilson rushed for two as they brought some of the variety Utah's offense lacked a year ago.
