For the second time in three years, Matt Asiata's season is over early.

Utah's senior running back, who scored the Utes' first touchdown in their 30-14 victory over Louisville at Rice-Eccles Stadium Saturday night, was injured on the same play.

The postgame announcement: Asiata tore his right anterior cruciate ligament, and will be sidelined for the rest of the season.

Asiata, joined his teammates on the sidelines in his street clothes after the touchdown, broke his leg two years ago in a season-opening loss at Oregon State.
