That the Utes could beat the Bears by dominating all phases of the game was a welcome change for a Utah team that was getting desperate for a league win.

Now the Utes, who host Washington State next, have at least kept alive their hopes of making the postseason for the 10th year in a row.

Arizona (5-3, 2-3) is the only team remaining on Utah’s schedule with a winning record. The Wildcats upset No. 9 USC 39-36 Saturday.

"We came in knowing we had to win this game," Dunn said. "Hopefully, we can get back on track. We’ll keep taking one game at a time."
