In the 3rd place match, Utah routed Oregon 60-0.
“Coming in as a new team in the Pac-10, it was good to see the level of competition we’ll be seeing,” said center sophomore Thretton Palamo. “Good to see us come from behind and capture a win against USC, showed a lot of heart. And Cal put us in a reality check. Now we know what we need to be.”
