Northern Colorado Vs. Utah Final Score: Utes Shut Out Bears, 41-0

The Northern Colorado Bears remain winless for head coach Earnest Collins Jr., as they fell to the Utah Utes in the season opener, 41-0, on Thursday. The Bears are now 0-12 over the last season plus one game.

The game was relatively quiet in the first quarter since the two teams played to a 0-0 tie, but the Utes' offense became relentless over the remaining three quarters. Jordan Wynn started the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jake Murphy just a few minutes into the second quarter and had to wait until the final two minutes of the quarter to see more points on the board. Travis Wilson scored the first of two rushing touchdowns when he crossed the goal line with 2:17 left in the half. John White IV cracked the end zone on a 4th-and-1 for a 5-yard touchdown.

Wilson went on to score his second rushing touchdown roughly four minutes into the third quarter. Wynn and Murphy connected for their second touchdown early in the fourth quarter while the final score of the game came on Joe Kruger's 23-yard interception return for a touchdown not even two minutes later.

Wynn finished the game 19-of-27 for 200 yards, a touchdown and an interception. White finished the game with 119 yards on 24 carries. Northern Colorado quarterback Seth Lobato was 10-of-24 for 74 yards. Utah outgained Northern Colorado in total yards, 414-114.

Utah (1-0) will play Utah State on Sept. 7. Northern Colorado takes on Colorado Mesa on Sept. 8.
